In recent years, we have witnessed extensive breakthroughs in the field of autonomous robotics. One key element of a successful robotic system is the exploitation of the visual and auditory information around the system in order to make decisions. Therefore, machine vision and audition is a major task in most robotic systems. Humans, on the other hand, are very adept at handling and processing visual and auditory stimuli to perform series of tasks such as object detection and identification. The key element in these tasks is the human brain—a complicated organ featuring some billions of neurons and some trillions of synapses (connections) between them. In recent years, due to the rise of parallel-processing hardware (i.e., graphical processing units (GPUs)), we have seen the emergence of deep neural network architectures that attempt to emulate the vastness and complexity of the human brain in order to match its performance. This is particularly evident in machine vision and audition applications, where the emergence of deep learning techniques has boosted the performance of traditional shallow neural network architectures.
The aim of this Special Issue is to present and highlight the newest trends in deep learning for machine vision and audition applications. This may include but is not limited to:
- Deep learning architectures;
- Deep learning image and audio classification;
- Deep learning object detection;
- Deep learning semantic segmentation;
- Deep learning image enhancement;
- Deep learning music information retrieval tasks;
- Deep learning audio-visual source separation;
- Deep learning audio-visual enhancement;
- Deep learning for audio-visual scene analysis;
- Deep learning for audio-visual emotion recognition;
- Deep learning for audio-visual face analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
