An information theoretic perspective on multimodal signal processing
Multimodal signals can be defined in general as signals originating from the same physical source, but acquired through different devices, techniques or protocols. This applies for example to audio-visual signals, medical or satellite images. Understanding the joint dependencies of such signals is the first step toward intelligent means for their analysis. Information theory offers a rich theoretical framework in which such dependencies can be emphasized and from this, new methods of signal analysis can be developed.
