### How do I take the average of multiple Fast Fourier Transforms?

How do I take the average of multiple fast Fourier transforms (ffts)? I have multiple audios that I want to take the fft of and then average these results to smooth out the random noise that appears ...

### What algorithms are there for taking an uncompressed audio file and calculating the frequencies present in the audio file?

I need an algorithm that can take an uncompressed audio file and determine the frequencies of the sounds represented by the audio file. (Let's say there are at most 6 sounds as an example)

### Is there a good analogy between spectral representation of a signal and graph theory?

I am working on some time series problems where the Fourier representation of the signal in the frequency domain is also important. I am wondering if there is any connection between time series ...

### Signal translation with Seq2Seq model

I'm currently doing some research on signal processing and I got a dataset which includes the signal in itself and its "translation". So I want to use a Many-to-Many RNN to translate the ...

### Does the illumination color (red/blue/green) has any effect over the disparity map generated from a stereo image?

I have a working model that creates a disparity map using stereoscopic image processing using opencv. I am thinking of improving the disparity map by using illumination and stuck with different ...

### Compute unknown matrices that minimize a sum

This problem is about working with smart-phone accelerometers. To calibrate accelerometer, I need to find three unknown matrices T, K and B that minimize this sum: \sum_{i=0}^N(|g|^2 - |TK(a_i + B)|...

### How much data can be send in 1 minute of audio with Smartphone speakers / microphones?

Having the current news about Google Assistant in mind, I thought that robots might use interfaces designed for humans to send data. Like a telephone interface. Then I wondered: What is the maximum ...

### How are similar bits separated? [closed]

A 1 is an "on" signal, and a 0 is an "off" signal. How does a computer know 01110 is different from 010? Does the computer wait between signals?
