Audio processing of dolphin and whale sounds was something that always interest me. As a new member of LabRosa and with the help of Prof. Dan Ellis i am willing to take on this challenge along with so many other scientists.
This project combines all the things that i like. The sea, dolphins, audio, machine learning and a lot of questions in desparate need of answers.
I will be constantly updating this page with new information, links, cool papers, pictures and anything i can think of.
