Part of the Workshops in Computing book series (WORKSHOPS COMP.)


In this paper the complex nature of Signal Processing (SP) is highlighted. Some basic architectural considerations for Knowledge-Based (KB) signal processing systems are discussed. A “multi-task” KB system called SPES (Signal Processing Expert System) is proposed to provide solutions for multiple SP task that employ common SP functions in their solution. Some features of the system to deal with multiplicity of tasks are discussed in detail.
