Signal Acquisition Modeling Processing and Learning (SAMPL) lab

The Signal Acquisition Modeling Processing and Learning (SAMPL) lab focuses on sampling, modeling and processing of continuous-time and discrete-time signals with the aim of extracting as much information as possible using minimal resources to perform various tasks, including communication, radar, medical and optical imaging and biological inference. The lab also develops model-based methods for artificial intelligence (AI) that aid in obtaining increased information from fewer samples, and facilitates the transition from pure theoretical research to the development, design and implementation of prototype systems and clinical studies. While traditional systems treat the sampling and processing stages separately and require sampling at the well-known Nyquist rate, SAMPL research focuses on new design paradigms in which sampling and processing are designed jointly in order to exploit the signal properties and the task already in the sampling stage. This approach can drastically reduce the sampling and processing rates well below the Nyquist rate, and greatly improve the resolution which can be obtained from a limited number of samples in time, space and frequency. It also paves the way to new technologies such as wireless ultrasound and joint radar and communication systems.
