Panel discussion at ICA'07

A panel discussion about evaluation was held at the ICA'07 (external link) conference. The main recommendations of the audience regarding future evaluations include
  • splitting the signal separation problem into several connected tasks that may be solved individually or simultaneously
  • providing reference software for each task
  • allowing different separation outputs, e.g. original source signals or their contribution to the mixture signal
  • considering real-world data of interest to companies, e.g. time-varying mixtures with one prominent speech source to be enhanced, music mixed in a studio
