Title: Bringing Sound to the Big Data Age

Models for sound have always hinged on parametric and low-rank formulations, predominantly to facilitate devices with limited power such as telephones and radios. As such devices constantly increase in computational abilities or get replaced by full-blown computers, we find ourselves under new circumstances that facilitate very different ways of thinking. In this seminar I'll talk about how we are rethinking the processing sound and speech, how we can tackle more ambitious problems, and the new computational methods that support this work.
