Christophe Micheyl on Small and Big Data Challenges for Hearing Aids

Date: 
Fri, 12/05/2014 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
All of us our familiar with the basic goal of a hearing aid, amplify sound. But a more difficult issue is how do you figure out the right parameters to help a user? Getting the right feedback from a patient who doesn't understand what they are hearing is difficult. There are dozens (hundreds) of parameters in modern hearing aids.  How do we take a patient's complaint that they can't hear in a restaurant and figure out what that means to their sound-processing needs? It's more than just turning up the volume.

Auditory Imagination and Priming: Pilot projects from the 2014 Telluride Neuromorphic Engineering Cognition Workshop

Date: 
Fri, 11/21/2014 - 11:00am - 12:30pm
Location: 
CCRMA Seminar Room
Event Type: 
Hearing Seminar
A lot of work is done to understand the bottom-up pathways in the brain. This summer’s work looked at top-down influences. Just how do auditory imagination and priming affect what we hear? More importantly, can we see evidence of priming or auditory imaginations via either psychoacoustics or with EEG measurements? The answer is a tentative yes.

At this week’s Hearing Seminar, I want to describe several pilot experiments that were done over the summer. This work was part of the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition workshop that is held every summer in Telluride, Co. It’s a rather scenic location, but is totally inundated with auditory perception nerds (and others) for three weeks of working workshop. Science in the mountains. Imagine that.

 Computers are evolving. We have voice-controlled assistants on our phones, telepresence robots for when we can't make it to a meeting in person, and self-driving cars that are headed to a road near you.

These machines aren't just taking over human tasks. Computerized systems are also taking on more human characteristics. As technology gets more advanced, how will our relationships with it change? Read more...

Book Review: "The Science of Sound Recording" by Jay Kadis, in Sound on Sound Magazine

The Science of Sound Recording by Jay Kadis

October, 2012, Hugh Robjohns, Sound on Sound Magazine

It’s a sad but true fact that most ‘sound engineers’ actually struggle with some of the technical and mathematical aspects that underpin audio engineering. Jay Kadis’ new book, The Science of Sound Recording (Focal Press, ISBN 978-0-240-82154-2), aims to help overcome those difficulties with clear, well-written explanations of a wide range of technical subjects related to sound recording.
