Signals and Information (Undergraduate)

This first year module introduces the fundamentals of signals, Fourier Series, information theory and signal statistics. Topics covered include: signal fundamentals such as discrete versus continuous time signals; signal average, energy and power; orthogonality; Fourier Series. The module also provides an introduction to information theory, including the information measure, entropy and the binary symmetric channel. Basic ideas in statistics will also be introduced. It will be taught by a combination of lectures, tutorials and labs.


Research Interests:

  • Music signal analysis and music information retrieval (automatic music transcription, multi-pitch detection, instrument identification, onset detection)
  • Acoustic scene analysis (acoustic event detection, acoustic scene classification)
  • Machine learning for audio processing (spectrogram factorization methods, probabilistic latent variable models, machine learning for sequential data)
  • Computational musicology and music language modelling (tuning/temperament estimation, computational analysis of music archives, computational ethnomusicology, integrating audio/symbolic models)
