Due to the coronavirus situation, the lectures and exercise sessions will be carried out on-line.
Welcome! In this course, modern signal processing techniques in biomedical applications are discussed. Subjects include different spectral analysis methods (incl. higher-order spectra), adaptive filters, pattern recognition methods, and time-frequency methods. Methods will be covered on the basis of real-life application examples as much as possible.
The goal is that, after completing this course successfully, you can:
1. recognise the main properties of a biosignal processing problem and assess what are appropriate techniques to use;
2. explain the underlying properties of the these signal processing techniques;
3. design components of a full 'signal processing and interpretation' chain for a real-life biomedical problem;
4. select and use methods to assess the usefulness/performance of this 'processing chain';
5. understand and discuss the clinical / healthcare requirements for biosignal processing applications
As pre-requisite it is assumed that you have followed an introductory digital signal processing course earlier. In the exercises we will make use of Matlab (Python support is under development).
An example of a Basic Signal Processing Course is:
"ELEC-C5230 - Digitaalisen signaalinkäsittelyn perusteet" and the therein suggested book by Mitra
From that course, the material covered in Lecture 1-3, first part of lecture 4, are subjects that are assumed to be known for this course, even if we are going through them here as well (but in fast pace). If you have followed similar course on other universities, that is fine as well - discuss with Mark if in doubt.
Lecturer of the course is: Mark van Gils ( firstname.lastname@example.org . from 1.1.2021 onwards_ email@example.com )
Course assistant is: Ivan Radevici ( firstname.lastname@example.org )
(lectures will be given on-line, link will be sent on 7.9.2020 to those who registered for the course)
There will be 8 lecture sessions, each of 3 hours. The first lecture will be on 8 Sept 2020
Thus, Tuesdays 8.9.2020 - 17.11.2020 (with several weeks skipped, please use table below as reference, not the automatically generated table on the right!), 11:15 - 14:00.
We will agree on breaks etc during the first lecture
Introduction and recapitulation of essential techniques
Treatment of non-stationary signals, adaptive filters
Time-frequency analysis, wavelets
Non-linear signals and methods

More details will be provided during the first lecture on 8 Sep 2020
