After decades of advances in signal processing, this article goes back to square one, when the word signal was defined. Here we investigate if everything is all right with this stepping stone of defining a signal. 
Predicting the Future is Like Completing a Painting: Towards a Novel Method for Time-Series Forecasting
This article introduces a new forecasting method based on image completion, named Forecasting Method by Image Inpainting (FM2I), which has achieved prominent results in terms of accuracy and outperforms the best M3 forecasting methods. Expand
Recognition of Hand Gestures and Conversion of Voice for Betterment of Deaf and Mute People
A system is built to convert hand gestures to voice with gesture understanding and motion capture, which will be helpful for deaf and mute people as it will increase their communication with other people. Expand
Study on the Digital Imaging Process to Improve the Resolution of Historical Artifacts Photos
The main purpose of this research was to find a better low pass filter that would both improve the quality of the resolution of an image and save operation time and process using mathematical, statistical and computational analysis. Expand
