Research group

AI and sound (AIS)

The section works in artificial intelligence, control of sound fields, quantification of speech and sound perception, enhancement and prediction of speech quality and intelligibility, hearing assistive devices, and audiology and hearing rehabilitation.

Research 

Key research areas 

The research of the AIS section is highly interdisciplinary and combines acoustics, signal processing, information theory, artificial intelligence, and user research.

Research application

The section is very active in research for hearing assistive devices and smart hearables on the future. This involves technical audiology, hearing rehabilitation, earphone-based listening research, sound exposure assessment, and optimal real-time algorithms and hardware architectures. The section’s systems make use of microphone arrays, cameras, and EEG sensors, and we use artificial intelligence, information theory, and acoustic signal processing for obtaining state-of-the-art performance in areas such as speaker verification, speech intelligibility prediction, and speech enhancement.

Labs 

The section has access to the following labs and equipment; Anechoic chambers, sound zone labs, spatial sound setups, eye tracking, EEG and GSR systems, high performance computers, low frequency room, reverberation room, social robots, audiometry room.

Collaboration 

Enterprises engaged in sound and acoustics, audio and video equipment, hearing assistive devices, navigation, energy, gaming, and healthcare.

External partners  

The section has established collaboration with numerous external partners, including: Bang & Olufsen, Oticon, GN ReSound, Widex, COWI, Terma, Interacoustics, KeySight, Brüel&Kjær, Radiometer, TC-Electronics, Novozymes, DFDS, TopDanmark, NXP Semiconductors, Spinvox Ltd., Fraunhofer, AM3D, RTX A/S and Binauric SE. The section also work with a large number of academic partners.

Key projects 

Centre for acoustic signal processing research (CASPR)

The center conducts research and education at Bachelor’s, Master’s, Ph.D. and post-doctoral level in machine learning, statistical signal processing, auditory perception, information and communication theory with applications to hearing assistive devices.

Better hearing rehabilitation (BEAR)

The overall vision of the project is to improve hearing rehabilitation in Denmark and around the world through an evidence-based renewal of clinical practice. The structured approach comprises studies of current practice, considerations for new methods, experimental application and refinement of this, evaluation and implementation of the most promising renewals.
