What we work on...
In Oldenburg, we work on algorithms that put the cocktail party effect into hearing aids. We follow various noise suppression approaches, from (binaurally connected) directional microphones to stochastic algorithms.
We perform fundamental research on algorithms for speech processing in hearing aids. These algorithms perform
- noise suppression/reduction
- volume compression, e.g. for compensating defects in loudness perception in the hard-of-hearing.
- signal classification, i.e. automatic signal classification to determine the current hearing environment.
