Section: Overall Objectives


The research interests of the METISS group are centered on audio, speech and music signal processing and cover a number of problems ranging from sensing, analysis and modelling sound signals to detection, classification and structuration of audio content.

Primary focus is put on information detection and tracking in audio streams, speech and speaker recognition, music analysis and modeling, source separation and "advanced" approaches for audio signal processing such as compressive sensing. All these objectives contribute to the more general area of audio scene analysis.

The main industrial sectors in relation with the topics of the METISS research group are the telecommunication sector, the Internet and multimedia sector, the musical and audiovisual production sector, and, marginally, the sector of education and entertainment.

On a regular basis, METISS is involved in bilateral or multilateral partnerships, within the framework of consortia, networks, thematic groups, national and European research projects, as well as industrial contracts with various local companies.
