Signal Processing Cup

MathWorks is sponsoring the Signal Processing Cup (SP Cup), an undergraduate student competition organized by IEEE Signal Processing Society.

SP Cup provides undergraduate students with the opportunity to form teams to solve a challenging and interesting real-world problem using signal processing techniques.

Three teams will be selected to present their work and to receive prizes awarded at ICASSP 2018 from April 15–20, 2018 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The title of this year’s competition is “Forensic Camera Model Identification Challenge”.

Hear from the 2017 winning team that used MATLAB and Signal Processing Toolbox to implement state-of-the-art beat tracking algorithms and benchmark their performance against various revisions of their own in-house algorithms.
