Blind Separation of Inaccessible Signals Received Through an Unknown Mixer

(joint work with Piotr Sulga and Vivek Nigam) The lecture will discuss blind separation of multiple inaccessibble source signals that are received in multiple receivers after having been passed through an a-priori unknown mixing matrix. Two approaches are discussed in terms of two applications. The first approach is an SVD-based approach that is applied to two inaccessible and mixed speech signals. The solution is via a LAMSTAR neural network that imitates an AMUSE algorithm. The source signals are assumed to be mutually uncorrelated in that approach. The second approach is based on Independent Component Analysis and is applied to separating a fetal EKG from the maternal EKG in which it is imbedded. This approach uses a gradient learning uses a gradient learning network and assumes the sources being mutually independent.
