Date and time: Monday, May 4, 2015 - 13:00
Place: 144-B
Abstract:

Audio processing applications can and do suffer from overload situations. This results in unwanted sound events: strong distortions, clicks and interruptions. For practical reason it is not always possible to resolve such problems always with more computational ressources. In this talk we will present ideas which try to take another approach. We want to flexibilise the computational costs of the elements of the audio processing chain to control them dynamically thus avoiding overload situations of the system. This flexibilization is realized by means of a trade-off between computational costs and the quality of the audio output.

In this seminar we will present an introduction to the subject as well as our first ideas and some preliminary proposals of our research.

Date and time: Monday, April 6, 2015 - 13:00
Place: Auditório do CCSL-IME
Abstract:

Cloud Computing is a buzzword that has got the attention of many areas. One of its attractions is the variety of services offered taking advantage of the powerful processing and data distribution. The cloud services present many benefits in case you want to use Cloud Computing but don't want to spend so much time setting up some virtual machine in order to start your projects.

In this talk we are going to present some Cloud Services, and we will discuss the many ways in which these services are useful at musical applications. The first results from this research will presented including a technical specification of the aimed results. We will present cloud services that permit users to exchange messages, and receive push notifications. These services were tested on mobile music applications transmitting million of messages though a single channel per day. The applications created with these services will be presented in detail at the end of the seminar. Everyone is invited to participate from the auditorium or remotely.
