Improving music enjoyment and speech-in-speech perception in cochlear implant users: a planned piano lesson intervention with a serious gaming control intervention

Although cochlear implants (CIs) provide hearing for severely-hearing-impaired or deaf populations, certain hearing abilities remain challenging for CI users.

Computational audiology and the technical burden of machine learning

The biggest hurdle facing computational audiologists may not be perfecting machine learning methods, but creating the infrastructure- including hardware, data management tools, and software engineering skills- to support this new type of research.

Dynamically Masked Audiograms with Machine Learning Audiometry
Final masked AMLAG results for one participant (127) with a left cochlear implant and no residual hearing. Red diamonds denote unheard tones and blue pluses denote heard tones. The most intense tones at lower frequencies in the left ear were effectively masked.

Dynamically Masked Audiograms with Machine Learning Audiometry

Dynamically masked audiograms achieve accurate true threshold estimates and reduce test time compared to current clinical masking procedures.
