When Machine Learning takes on Signal Processing

Abstract :

This talk describes the journey of leading audio and vision researchers and domain experts from using signal processing as their primary tool to using machine learning and deep learning as their first option. This change was not just about using new technology, but also about changing the mindset and reframed the way R&D is done. We will also cover the reasons behind the shift, what worked/what didn't and lessons learned to help guide and inform other teams planning to go through a similar transition.
