Applications that involve signals interpretation are ubiquitous in human life. A common task in this type of application is the classification. This task involves a mapping f:X->Y where X is the space of complex objects, in this case digital signals, and Y represents the space of possible categories or classes for which each signal can be associated. In this project, we are interested in classifying species of diseases vector mosquitoes from signals collected by an optical sensor. The classification by similarity and attribute extraction in various signal representations are possible approaches to be used to accomplish this task. In this project, we propose the insect classification from optical sensor signals based on representations proposed to speech and music signals analysis. (AU)
