    The meteoric growth of the mobile communication market for the last three decades has been strongly related with the evolution of the electroacoustic (EA) filter technology. With way over 5 billion cell phone users worldwide ...
  • Matrix completion with prior information in reproducing kernel Hilbert spaces 

    Giménez Febrer, Pedro Juan (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-02-11)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    In matrix completion, the objective is to recover an unknown matrix from a small subset of observed entries. Most successful methods for recovering the unknown entries are based on the assumption that the unknown full ...
  • Self-supervised deep learning approaches to speaker recognition 

    Khan, Umair (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2021-01-11)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    In speaker recognition, i-vectors have been the state-of-the-art unsupervised technique over the last few years, whereas x-vectors is becoming the state-of-the-art supervised technique, these days. Recent advances in Deep ...
  • Injection of linguistic knowledge into neural text generation models 

    Casas Manzanares, Noé (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2020-12-14)
    Doctoral thesis
    Open Access
    Language is an organic construct. It emanates from the need for communication and changes through time, influenced by multiple factors. The resulting language structures are a mix of regular syntactic and morphological ...
  • From hypothesis testing of quantum channels to secret sharing
