Speech Title: Adaptive Filters – Theory and Practice

Abstract: First part of this talk will cover basic theory and some applications of a special group of algorithms and techniques used for digital signal processing known as adaptive digital filters. Those filters differ from the ordinary digital filters due to the fact that they can change their behaviour and properties during the operation. This leads to interesting properties of those algorithms and a wide range of applications. Main theory and rules behind the adaptation of those filters to changing operating conditions will be described in this talk and the equations used to implement some basic adaptive algorithms given.
Second part of the talk will focus on configurations in which those filters can be deployed and discuss some of the applications such are active noise control and system identification in more details. Finally, multiple-channel active noise control system designed to generate zones of silence over a wider area will be described and some results illustrated.
