Source Separation Tutorial Mini-Series II: Introduction to Non-Negative Matrix Factorization

Tue, 04/09/2013 - 5:30pm - 7:30pm
CCRMA Classroom
Event Type: 
DSP Seminar

Abstract: For the second talk in this series, we will introduce the topic of non-negative matrix factorization for the purpose of single-channel source separation.  NMF is one of the current most promising and effective class of approaches found for source separation and is a popular topic in several signal processing conferences and journals.  Following the lecture, we will get a chance to program a basic source separator. Please bring your laptops with Matlab and/or Octave installed and be ready to code!
