Speaker information

Professor Olivier Adam, University of Paris. My main focus are signal processing and pattern recognition applied to Bioacoustic applications. I'm working on detection and localization of marine mammals using passive acoustics. My research project consists to analyse the sound emitted by cetaceans, especially sperm whales, blue whales and recently humpback whales. These studies are based on the segmentation of recordings and on the extraction of the pertinent information for characterizing the species or the individuals.
