Entry requirements
Basic principles of signal processing (preferably successfully completed the course Signal- und Systemtheorie and/or Blockpraktikum Digitale Signalverarbeitung)
Skills to be acquired in this module
The students will gain in-depth knowledge on the subjects' speech and audio processing. The practical part of the course mediates insight about important properties of the methods treated in a self-study approach, while the application and transfer of theoretical concepts to practical applications is gained by implementing algorithms on a computer.
Module contents
After reviewing the basic principles of speech processing and statistical signal processing (adaptive filtering, estimation theory), this course covers techniques and underlying algorithms that are essential in many modern-day speech communication and audio processing systems (e.g. mobile phones, hearing aids, headphones): acoustic echo and feedback cancellation, noise reduction, dereverberation, microphone and loudspeaker array processing, active noise control. During the exercises a typical hands-free speech communication or audio processing system is implemented (in Matlab).
