Section: Overall Objectives


The main industrial sectors in relation with the topics of the PANAMA research group are the telecommunication sector, the Internet and multimedia sector, the musical, audio and visual production sector and, marginally, the sector of education and entertainment. Source separation is one of PANAMA's major applicative focus generating increasing industrial transfers. The models, methods and algorithms developed in the team have many potential applications beyond audio processing and modeling – the central theme of the PANAMA project-team – in particular to biomedical signals and remote sensing. Such applications are primarily investigated in partnership with research groups with the relevant expertise (within or outside Inria).

On a regular basis, PANAMA 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.
