Social Service Program

I supervize a social service program named "Auditory Scene Analysis" in the IIMAS inside the UNAM. It is renewed annually so its code changes every year.

The activities that are carried out in this program for technical degrees are:

  • Development and re-engineering of audio (and related signals) processing modules and techniques.
  • Evaluation and validation of already-implemented modules.
  • Application of audio algorithms focused on service robotics and search-and-rescue.
  • Evaluation and validation of audio algorithms in hearing aides and bio-acoustics.
  • Development of techniques for intelligent homes and mobile devices.

The activities that are carried out in this program for music-related degrees are:

  • Validation and evaluation of algorithms that analyze music recordings.
  • Validation and evaluation of algorithms focused on music composition.
  • Research and processing of music corpora.
  • Field recordings.
  • Validation and evaluation of microphone arrays to carry out music recordings.
