We present an overview of new technologies for signal and information processing, with specific emphasis on new scenarios for audio and visual information processing, new user interfaces, and speech and language processing. Many of those technologies are a result of developments in new computing architectures, streaming data processing, and deep neural networks, all related to the rapid growth in new technologies for the efficient communication, storage, and analytics on big data.

BIO: Henrique (Rico) Malvar is a Microsoft Distinguished Engineer and the Chief Scientist for Microsoft Research. He joined Microsoft Research in 1997, founding a signal processing group, which developed new technologies such as new media compression formats used in Windows, Xbox, and Office, microphone array processing technologies used in Windows, Tablet PCs, and Xbox Kinect, and others. Rico’s group also developed the first prototype of the RoundTable videoconferencing device. Rico was a key architect for the media compression formats WMA and HD Photo / JPEG XR , and made key contributions to the H.264 video format, which todays accounts for 2/3 of all Internet traffic (Netflix, YouTube, etc.). Rico received a Ph.D. in EECS from MIT (1986). He has over 115 issued US patents, and over 160 publications in scientific and technical venues. He is an IEEE Fellow and has received many awards, including a Technical Achievement Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society in 2002, and being elected a Member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering in 2012.
