AI Advances Audio

Researchers at the University of Washington have developed AI-enabled headphones, called “Target Speech Hearing,” which allow users to listen to a single person’s voice in a noisy environment by looking at the speaker for three to five seconds.

The system uses machine learning to isolate and enhance the enrolled speaker’s voice in real-time, even as the user moves. The technology, still a proof-of-concept, aims to improve auditory perception in noisy settings.
