Dr. Mohammad Asghari and Prof. Bahram Jalali Won the Best Paper
Award at the 2013 IEEE International Symposium on Signal Processing
and Information Technology for the paper entitled, “Anamorphic
Transform and its Application to time-bandwidth compression.”
Professor Jalali and his team created an entirely new method of doing data compression. The new technique warps or reshapes the signal carrying the data in a fashion resembling the graphic art technique known as anamorphism. The transformation causes the signal to be reshaped in such a way that sharp features are stretched more than coarse features. Upon subsequent sampling, this Feature Selective Stretch causes more digital samples to be allocated to sharp features where they are needed the most, and fewer to coarse features where they would be redundant.
The 2013 IEEE ISSPIT was held back in December 2013 in Athens, Greece. The global conference is supported by the IEEE Signal Processing Society which covers subjects on mathematical, statistical, computational and other methods to enable generation, transformation, extraction and interpretation of information and signals.
