授業の概要
/Course outline
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 a 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.

This course provides an introduction to numerical geometry processing using Java as a programming language. We give a presentation of the Java 2D API (which is part of any Java SDK) for 2D processing and rendering, then give a presentation of the OpenGL API via its Java bindings for 2D and 3D rendering.
Armed with this knowledge, we look at curve and surface modeling, first from a continuous point of view, then from a discrete point of view, with computer implementations in mind.
Finally, we provide an overview of the 3D modeling pipeline (acquisition, alignment, reconstruction) and look at several methods for processing digital shapes.

We survey the physics and nature of sound waves
(compression & rarefaction, propagation, transmission, diffusion, diffraction, refraction,
spreading loss, absorption, boundary effects, radiation,
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,
display and multichannel ("discrete") systems (transducers, 5.1, speaker arrays),
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
Demonstration-rich formal lectures interleaved with laboratory sessions
provide a rigorous, theoretical
background as well as practical experience regarding basic audio operations.
The university's exercise rooms feature multimedia workstations,
at which students can work individually or in teams
to explore concepts regarding sound and audio.
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 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.

授業の概要
/Course outline
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; convolutional neural network; deep auto-encoder; deep Boltzmann machine; Bayesian network; decision tree, decision ensembles, etc. To reinforce the learned knowledge, students will do some projects. Through these projects, students will solve some real-life or synthesized problems using some of the learned methods. Students are encouraged to work in a team, to solve the problems together, and to learn how to communicate and collaborate with others.
