The section for Multimedia Information and Signal Processing (MISP), Department of Electronic Systems, focuses its research and teaching activities on multimedia technologies, primarily speech, audio, video, and the sciences that support them. We also do research within the design and evaluation of multi modal user interfaces, with a special focus on mobile devices.
The major research objective is to contribute to the development of improved multimedia information and signal processing systems (modalities: speech, audio, visual, and text) for various applications, and to study the human interaction and usability of such systems.
To achieve this goal, a variety of research activities are set up ranging from fundamental/theoretical works over application driven algorithm design and implementation to end user testing.
MISP draws concepts from fields such as numerical linear algebra, optimization, statistics, signal processing, pattern recognition, machine learning, speech and language processing, software engineering, and usability engineering.
