Dear colleagues, 

We are pleased to announce that a MOOC (Massive Open Online Course), on Binaural Hearing for Robots will start on May 11th, 2015 for a period of five weeks on the French platform France Université Numérique (FUN). The MOOC is taught by Radu Horaud from the INRIA Perception group. 

This course will adress fundamental issues in robot hearing and will describe methodologies requiring two or more microphones embedded into a robot head, thus enabling sound-source localization, sound-source separation, and fusion of auditory and visual information. This course is intended to students with good background in signal processing and machine learning and is also valuable to PhD students, researchers and practitioners who work in signal and image processing, machine learning, robotics, or human-machine interaction and who wish to acquire novel competence in binaural hearing methodologies. The course material will allow the attendants to design and develop robot and machine hearing algorithms. 

This MOOC was produced by Inria’s MoocLab, as part of the uTOP project (http://utop.fr/ - http://utop.inria.fr/). 

If you are interested to attend this course and to get credits, please register here (registration is free but mandatory) :
