Automatic and individualized bio-inspired hearing technologies. Ghent University
With the rise of speech and audio steered automatic systems (e.g., speech recognition, speech-to-text), also the limitations of these technologies have become apparent. Automatic speech recognition fails when the acoustic conditions are sub-optimal due to background noise, and applications are not tailored to the pathologies of individuals interfacing with them (e.g. speech or hearing-impairments). To improve the application range and ...
Addressing Limitations of Language Models
Applications that automatically process language and/or speech are numerous, including, but not limited to: Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR), Machine Translation, Speech Translation, Spelling Correction, Natural Language Understanding and Natural Language Generation. Every application typically needs a special-purpose system and datasets with task-specific labels, but there is one common ...

Speech Encoding in Impaired Hearing Ghent University
The prevalence of hearing impairment amongst the elderly is a stunning 33%, while the younger generation is sensitive to noise-induced hearing loss through increasingly loud urban life and lifestyle. Yet, hearing impairment is inadequately diagnosed and treated because we fail to understand how the components that constitute a hearing loss impact robust speech encoding. A recent and ground-breaking discovery in animal physiology demonstrated ...
