A Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) “Binaural Hearing for Robots” will be available on the platform France Université Numérique from 11 May to 12 June 2015. It will be taught by Radu Horaud, research director at Inria Grenoble Rhône-Alpes.
This course addresses fundamental issues in robot hearing and describes methodologies requiring two or more microphones embedded into a robot head thus enabling sound-source localization, sound-source separation, and fusion of auditory and visual information. The course is intended for students with good background in signal processing and machine learning. It is also valuable to PhD students, researchers and practitioners who work in signal and image processing, machine learning, robotics, or human-machine interaction and who wish to acquire novel competence in binaural hearing methodologies. The course material will allow the attendants to design and develop robot and machine hearing algorithms.
The course is provided by Inria through the project IDEFI uTOP (Open MultiPartner University of Technology).
