Weekly Seminar Series: “I-CUBE project”

19 September 2018 - 19 September 2018

ABSTRACT: I-CUBE project  has been funded by Inmarsat UK to analyze and evaluate the viability of using Ultra-Narrow-Band (UNB) systems in the return link of LEO constellations. This study has also included the characterization of the satellite channel, the description of the physical layer and the access scheme of a UNB communication system and the [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Li-Fi by Lucibel: The first industrialised solution on the market”

ABSTRACT: Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) is a technology for wireless communication that uses light to provide data transmission and illumination services simultaneously. From the beginning, Li-Fi has been designed to give to the end-user a connectivity experience that is similar to Wi-Fi. Among other advantages, Li-Fi guarantees highly secured data transmissions, can be used in areas [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Graph Signal Processing”

ABSTRACT: Signal Processing has traditionally dealt with time series, images, video where data is indexed by time ticks and pixels. The structure of the indexing set is taken for granted. In the last few years, new opportunities for signal and data processing have arisen, except data is now indexed by social agents, genes, customers of [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Indoor localization and tracking: from theoretical foundations to practical applications”

This seminar is part of the Distinguished Lecturer Tour (DLT) for Spain of the Prof. Davide Dardari. ABSTRACT: The need for accurate geolocation has intensified in recent years, especially in cluttered environments (e.g., inside buildings, in urban canyons, under tree canopies, and in caves), where the global positioning system (GPS) is often inaccessible. The talk [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Compressed Sensing: Introduction to Theory and Practical Algorithms”

05 June 2018 - 05 June 2018
Speaker: Carlos Buelga, Researcher, David Gregoratti, Ph.D.

ABSTRACT: ASIP Department of Communication System Division is pleased to invite you to the course entitled “Compressed Sensing: Introduction to Theory and Practical Algorithms”. Compressed Sensing studies the compression and recovery of sparse signals with a reduced number of measurements. Efficient algorithms for reconstruction exists, such as the L1 minimization, many applications in signal processing [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Overview of the 3D printed multiplexers for wireless communications project (Ref. LLAV00045)”

02 May 2018 - 02 May 2018

ABSTRACT: This talk will summarize the main results achieved during the execution of the project: 3D printed multiplexers for wireless communications. Multiplexers are designed using only resonators and made using additive manufacturing techniques; the designs are successfully fabricated and characterized in the laboratory. The talk will recap the diverse designs, fabrication techniques used to create [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Learning from Playing Games”

25 April 2018 - 25 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Many baby animals play to understand the world. From this evidence, some psychologists and pedagogists have proposed “gamification” as a technique for better learning… With inconclusive results. Here, Prof. Figueiras proposes a different perspective: To learn from (consciously) playing different kinds of (singular and collective, mainly) games, and even to learn from players. Playing [...]

Weekly Seminar Series: “Binary Re-balance via Likelihood Ratio Invariance”

25 April 2018 - 25 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Imbalanced classification problems are those in which populations and (mis)classification costs are very different. They are pervasive and important in many real-world application fields, from Health to Security, including Economy, Industry, Business, and Social Media, to cite just a few. Unfortunately, the powerful discriminative machines seriously fail when applied to these problems –just as [...]

Weekly Seminar: “Two ways you did not know mobile networks could be useful”

04 April 2018 - 04 April 2018

ABSTRACT: Mobile networks provide support to a variety of communication-based services that are steadily changing our lives. However, they are also pervasive infrastructures that can be used in unconventional ways unrelated to communication. Specifically, mobile networks can be seen as large-scale remote sensing platform capable of providing fine-grained information about a large (and increasing) fraction [...]
