We survey the physics and nature of sound waves (compression &
rarefaction, propagation, transmission, diffusion, diffraction, refraction,
spreading loss, absorption, boundary effects, non-point sources,
reflection, reverberation, superposition, beats & standing waves),
description and representation of sound (analog/digital, complex
analysis, waveforms, pulse code modulation, Fourier analysis),
measurements of sound and audio (sampling, aliasing, decibels,
pressure, power, intensity, level),
synthesis (additive, AM, FM, envelopes, filtering, equalizers,
spatialization, distortion),
psychophysics (loudness, masking, critical bands),
coding and compression (SNR, A-law, u-law, MP3, AAC, parametric stereo),
display and multichannel ("discrete") systems (transducers, 5.1, speaker arrays, WFS),
tuning,
and user interfaces (conferencing, virtual concerts, mixed and virtual reality).
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
The university's exercise rooms feature multimedia workstations,
at which students can work individually or in teams
to explore concepts regarding sound and audio.
Demonstration-rich formal lectures interleaved with laboratory sessions
provide a rigorous, theoretical
background as well as practical experience regarding basic audio operations.
Interactive exercises, based on workstations and tablets, provide realtime
"hands-on" multimedia
educational opportunities that are stimulating and creative, as
students enjoy intuitive, experiential learning.
Utilized resources include
audio synthesis and multimedia data-flow visual programming (Pure Data),
audio editing and analysis software (Audacity),
interactive physics visualization and auralization physics applets (illustrating wave behavior, DSP, filtering, etc.),
advanced computational and plotting utilities (Mathematica),
effects processing (GarageBand),
and our own web-based multimedia courseware.
This course is intended to be useful to audio engineers and researchers, as well as musicians.
In other words, this course is about theory, simulation and practice:
playing with sound, learning by doing, and about saying (instead of "see you") "hear you!"
Students who complete this course will be empowered with basic knowledge of sound and audio
and the confidence to apply those principals to generally encountered
situations in sound and audio engineering.

Learning ability is one of the most fundamental abilities for realizing
“intelligence”. A system with the learning ability can become more and more
efficient and/or effective for solving given problems. Briefly speaking,
machine learning is a research field for studying theories, methodologies,
and algorithms that enable computing machines to learn and to become
intelligent. So far, many approaches have been proposed in the literature
for machine learning; and multilayer perceptron, convolutional neural
network, Bayesian network, and decision tree are just a few examples. In
this course, we categorize many existing approaches into a few groups,
namely, learning based on distance, learning based on probability, learning
based on layered structures, and learning based on tree structures. We do
not intend to cover all aspects of machine learning in this single course.
Instead, we will focus on several most well-known and well-applied
approaches. We suppose that, before taking this course, the students have
already studied some fundamental courses related to machine learning, say,
“Artificial intelligence” for undergraduate school, “Introduction to neural
networks” for graduate school, and so on. To know more about machine
learning or AI in general, we recommend the students to take other related
courses. For example, in the graduate school, the students may also take
courses related to big-data analysis; ontology and semantic web;
information retrieval; meta-heuristics; and so on.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
The main goal of this course is to study and understand the basic
concepts and mechanisms of several well-known and well-applied machine
learning approaches, including for example, k-means, self-organization;
Naïve Bayes classification; support vector machine; convolutional neural
network; deep auto-encoder; deep Boltzmann machine; Bayesian network;
decision tree, AdaBoost, random forest, etc. To reinforce the learned
knowledge, students will do some team projects in groups. Through these
projects, students will solve some real-life or synthesized problems using
some of the learned methods.

Recently, there have been very large and complex data sets from nature, sensors, social networks, enterprises increasingly based on high speed computers and networks together.
Big data is the term for a collection of the data sets that it becomes difficult to process using on-hand database management tools or traditional data processing applications.
Data science is a novel term that is often used interchangeably with competitive intelligence or business analytics,
and it seeks to use all available and relevant data to effectively tell a story that can be easily understood by non-practitioners.
Data science based on the big data is expected to provide very potent prediction and analysis for information and knowledge of various fields of researches and businesses from the new data set.
Main objective of this course is to build up business viewpoints and target to use the big data, to learn technologies and skills to accomplish the business target.

The purpose of this course is to study the fundamentals of spatial hearing and its application to virtual environments. By using two ears, human among other species, are able to determine the direction from where a sound is being emitted in a real environment. For virtual environments (e.g., movies, games, recorded or live concerts) is desirable to provide the spatial cues found in nature to increase the realism of the scene. Besides reviewing the underlying theories of spatial hearing, this course focuses in practical implementations of binaural hearing techniques, so the course is intense in hands-on exercises, assignments, and projects mainly based on Pure-data programming language (http://puredata.info).
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
• Students who approve this course are expected to understand the basic underlying mechanisms of spatial hearing, as well as the literature and terminology on this topic.
• Given some application constraints (real-time, computing power, etc.) students at the end of the term should be able to decide which of the presented techniques is best for creating the 3D aural illusion.
• Upon completion of this course, students should be able to successfully implement virtual 3D sound environments based on head-related transfer functions (HRTF) and multi-speaker systems.

When the end user needs information, he/she looks on the Internet. The Internet is the source of information of any kind: inquiries, entertainment, science, etc. In this course, we will study the key ideas of text mining, which are available to efficiently organize, classify, label and extract relevant information for today’s information-centric users.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment

This course explores the human-computer interface as used in interactive multimedia, namely the design of real-time computer games. We feature a project-based, “hands-on” approach, emphasizing creation of self-designed virtual worlds for CGM: consumer-generated media and UGC: user-generated content. The main vehicles of expression are “Alice,” and “Unity,” object-oriented, rapid-prototyping 3D scenario IDEs (integrated development environments), to combine segments on “desktop virtual reality,” motion graphics, color (and color gradients), graphical and visual design, texture mapping, sound, music, speech and dialog, as well as software engineering and parallel computing. We also use Sumo Paint, Audacity, and GarageBand as support tools for multimedia content creation. The power of experiential education is leveraged by lessons with an emphasis on practical experimentation, learning by doing.
授業の目的と到達目標
/Objectives and attainment
goals
We survey the basics of game design, including human interfaces, including demonstrations and “hands-on” exercises with basics of multimedia: color models, image capture and compositing, graphic composition and 3D drawing, texture mapping, stereography, and audio (including dialog) & musical editing. Students use self-designed multimodal interfaces authored with object-oriented techniques to tell stories with virtual characters and cinematography (camera motion and gestures, “camerabatics”) for deterministic “machinima” (machine cinema = computer-generated movies) and to engage users in dynamic environments such as games and digital interactive story-telling.
