Speech processing for hearing aids: noise reduction motivated by models of binaural interaction.
Source: Acustica 83(4):684-99.
Abstract: The focus of this paper is on algorithms used to reduce ambient noise and enhance the "desired" speech signal in complex acoustical environments. The algorithms are based on the binaural interaction in the normal human auditory system. The four classes of algorithms are explained and the hardware and software required for implementing and testing them in real-time are introduced and discussed. The implications and future use of these algorithms are discussed. (CIRRIE Abstract)
