Section: Overall Objectives
In addition to the dissemination of our work through publications in conferences and journals, our scientific activity is accompanied with the permanent concern of evaluation and assessment of our progress within the framework of evaluation campaigns.
This year, our project-team organized and participated to the Signal Separation Evaluation Campaigns during the ICA conferences (International Conference on Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation). The campaign has shown that the performance of the source separation algorithms developed by Metiss are at, or above, the level of the best state-of-the-art competitors [SiSEC09], for a large variety of performance criteria. For more details, refer to : [SiSEC09] http://sassec.gforge.inria.fr/SiSEC_underdetermined/test_eval.html , Algorithms 3,4 and 10.
The group was also involved in a number of evaluation campaigns in audio processing within the ESTER and QUAERO projects : our systems ranked at a state-of-the-art level in audio classification and in multipitch estimation.
