Event details

ISVR seminar

In the Clarity project, we will run a series of machine learning challenges aimed at advancing speech processing for hearing devices. Over five years, there will be three paired challenges. Each pair will consist of a competition focussed on hearing-device processing ("enhancement") and another focussed on speech perception modelling ("prediction"). The enhancement challenges will deliver new and improved approaches for hearing device signal processing for speech. The parallel prediction challenges will develop and improve methods for predicting speech intelligibility and quality for hearing impaired listeners. The project is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) UK and is a collaboration between researchers from the Universities of Sheffield, Salford, Nottingham and Cardiff in conjunction with the Hearing Industry Research Consortium, Action on Hearing Loss, Amazon, and Honda. This talk will present the project as a whole and an overview of the first Enhancement Challenge that we plan to launch at the end of January.

You can join the seminar via MS Teams
