SINS Workshop
30-01-2018 :: Thermotechnisch Instituut, Kasteelpark Arenberg 41, 3001 Heverlee

Organizer: KU Leuven

Big brother is hearing you? Cameras are surrounding us, but there is also a lot of information you can obtain when simply listening to the environment. There are actually a lot of players in Flanders that are already active in this domain, or showing interest in this. Industrial players target smart listening solutions in homes, health care, or public spaces. Research actors push the boundaries on acoustic detection accuracies and efficiencies, such as in te SBO project SINS, a collaboration between various Flemish research groups of KU Leuven, VUB and Imec, aiming to enable continuous, battery powered smart listening. And what about privacy? What are the rules and regulations, and can technology help to accomodate to them?

This workshop brings together the industrial, research and privacy actors in the field of smart listening. Several industrial keynote talks will focus on commercial opportunities of smart listening. This is complemented with a discussion of privacy implications of distributed acoustic sensing. The keynote talks are interwoven with two research sessions, bringing the highlights of recent research on various aspects of smart listening solutions, conducted in the SINS project.
