Report on Advanced Faculty Training at C-DAC, Kolkata

Objective:

To gain and share some knowledge on Advanced Digital Signal Processing, Speech and Image Processing.

Experience:

Advanced Faculty Training on Digital Signal Processing, Speech and Image Processing is an academia knowledge sharing initiative taken by Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), Kolkata. The training was a two weak full time course from 31st December 2012 to 11th January 2013. The primary objective of this programmeis to update/enhance the skills of engineering faculties in advanced domains of Information Technology keeping pacewith the IT industry. The engineering faculties may be exposed to the needs of IT industry so that they can in-turn nurture, educate and mould their students while they are still in the college. The training methodology includes:     

State-of-the-art course wire Module wise case studies Matlab based laboratory assignment Classroom Lectures Special lecture session by external experts

Each module they had prepared for delivery, aimed for practical aspect of that theory and some of which related to their current research work. The content they have covered have been listed below: Digital Signal Processing: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

Overview of DSP Signal & Systems Fourier Series, z-Transform, Wavelet Transform Different digital filters and their application Recent research trends in DSP including their work

Speech Processing: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Introduction of Speech Signal Processing Knowledge sources in speech like time and frequency domain, spectrograms etc. Modelling techniques for developing speech system like VQ, HMM, GMM etc. Speech recognition Speech synthesis Speaker recognition

Image processing: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Basic image processing Frequency domain analysis of signal – Fourier to wavelets Image compression and different formats Video tracking and processing Introduction to pattern in Image Processing Feature extraction Classification and Clustering Laboratory experiments of the above mentioned algorithms

Mr. Milton SamirakshmaBepari of CDAC, Kolkata given an introduction on DSP and its application in image processing. Practical session in this module includes some basic filter design in MATLAB. Dr.Y.K.Sing of CDAC, Bangalore, has discussed some advances in transformation technique in signal processing and a linked hands-on session have been made on advanced filter like optimal filter,

comb filter etc. we have learned some application of scientific computing on embedded platform like e-Agri instrument, e-nose, image acquisition hardware development. Mr.DebasisMazumdar of CDAC, Kolkata, has discussed some of the limitations of existing mathematics used in DSP and introduction to stastical signal processing. Prof.P.K.Das from IIT Guwahati conducted a special session on speech processing , speech production model and feature extraction. Some practical case studies and hands-on session made on Speech synthesis and Speaker Recognition. In contrast to that knowledge, some interesting research affairs discussed by Prof Ashoke Kumar Dutta from ISI on “Cognition and its application in speech synthesis”. Throughout that discussion, some research problem has been thrown to us, which will add some value in my research progress. Prof.T.K.Basu of IIT, Kharagpur given lectures on image processing. We have gone through some hands-on session on designing an algorithm for image compression using MATLAB. They have discussed some research problems on “Machine Vision” and “Vision Perception Engineering”. We have also gone through some of the case studies like: 1. Fingerprint Verification 2. Bullet Cartridge Identification 3. Face Recognition 4. Facial Expression Analysis 5. Quality testing of Tea Leaf 6. Character Recognition Software Development Beside normal course module, an awareness session conducted on “Cyber Security and Rules” for the software developers working in this area. I want to thank Mr.SantanuRanjanDutta for supplying necessary documents, books, website links and research materials.

Outcomes:

I have gained extensive details of subject knowledge along with practical knowledge. Case studies and practical examples enrich my concept on that topic and that will help me to conduct lab in my institution. The research problems they have thrown, also help me in my research activity and also for my students.

Institutional Development:

What I can contribute for the institute has been listed below:      

I can share my knowledge among the students. Practical ideas gained during that training will be helpful for performing innovative experiment in lab session. I can share the tutorial material among students provided by CDAC. I can help to add extra tutorials in the curriculum of UG and PG course to meet industrial needs. UG and PG students can be motivated in research work by providing small research problems as a project. I can help to arrange some collaborative R&D activity in our institution for upliftment of our research activity.
