We have implemented a near-ultrasonic communication protocol in the 18.5–20 kHz band, which is inaudible to most humans, using commodity smartphone speakers and microphones to transmit and receive signals. The protocol described in this paper is a component of Google's Nearby platform, where near-ultrasound signals are used to establish copresence between nearby... Read more on IEEE Xplore

In music, repetition is a fundamental concept to establish structure and create temporal relationships. Previous approaches to detecting repetition in music recordings have mainly focused on discovering repeated patterns of variable length and instrumentation at arbitrary locations. In this paper, we present a novel method for the discovery of repeated sung phrases in folk music recordings and,... Read more on IEEE Xplore

Superresolution (SR) of compressed images is chall-enging due to the combination of resolution loss and compression artifacts. To solve these intertwined problems, the conventional cascading framework splits the solution into independent deblocking and SR subprocesses, where some existing high-frequency (HF) components are often oversmoothed during deblocking and information exchange between...
