An audio fingerprint is a compact digest derived from perceptually relevant aspects of a recording. Fingerprinting technologies allow the monitoring of audio content without the need of meta-data or watermark embedding.

Anaesthesia is a medical act which eliminates the feeling of pain as well as the motor reactions of a person, before performing a surgical operation. Loco-Regional Anaesthesia (LRA) concerns only a part of the body such as the front arm or leg. This practice is increasingly used today notably because the patient can remain conscious and can recover more… (More)
In this paper we present a new robust adaptive algorithm. It is derived from the standard QR Decomposition based RLS QRD-RLS algorithm by introducing a non-orthogonal transform into the update recursion. Instead of updating an upper triangular matrix , as it is the case for the QRD-RLS, we adapt an upper triangular block diagonal matrix. The complexity of… (More)
