Section 1 discusses and demonstrates what parameter adjustments can accomplish in the method of removing motion blur from photographic images. Section 2 indicates the status of work in color vision, and the expected method of reporting these results. Section 3 describes a method for strikingly increasing the perceived quality of synthetic speech. Additional computation at the receiver is used to generate two channels i.e. binaural of sound for a stereo headphone set. This method requires no change in the existing generation and transmission processes and algorithms. Section 4 demonstrates one method of removing noise from speech. Intelligible speech has been generated from input signals that contain 18dB of noise. Section 5 reviews methods of suppressing noise in a one-dimensional signal stream e.g. speech by using two-dimensional processing. Sections 6 and 7 report the start of work in the coding of speech, and in the mathematical theory of human perception. Both indicate our future directions in these fields. Section 8 outlines the Image Understanding Research that has been proposed for the future.
