    Artificial Intelligence That Changes Hearing

    Artificial Intelligence That Changes Hearing

    In this episode on AI and Hearing we investigate how hearing aids are becoming progressively smarter and more automatic, because they’re able to analyse the environment, based on libraries and machine learning that is incorporated in the hearing aid.

    It’s able to identify different environments and detect different qualities of the sound and amount of noise, and then adjust how it processes the best sound for the user. The question is what the user wants and how to tell?


    Listen up is a Widex original podcast. It is produced by hearHEAr podcast studio, edited and scriptet by Anders Guldberg, soundscore by Mathias Lyhne. Speak by John Churchill.

    The Vicious Circle [tinnitus part I]

    The Vicious Circle [tinnitus part I]

    Tinnitus. Is there a cure?
    The ringing. You try to cover your ears with the palms of your hands... But it won’t go away. It doesn’t help. The ringing is inside you. Its generated in your brain. It’s not a real sound there is, it’s a phantom sound.

    In a three part series we will take apart tinnitus and piece by piece tell the story of what is…. that ringing in the brain.

    The vicious circle

Bobbabe ,

Great concept, poor implementation.

Having Tinnitus, I understand how important information is when it clone to understanding the problem. Ironically, outside of the hosts voice recording, much of the sound quality is terrible. That, compounded by poor field recordings of specialists, many of whom have accents that are difficult to understand makes this series a bit hard to take. Improving those issues and perhaps having some of the specialists speak more slowly at lest could help those of us with the problem gain some insights.
