'We have created a new speech audibility standard'
Richard Hendriks and Richard Heusdens (Circuits and Systems) have, together with PhD candidate Cees Taal and colleagues, worked on a new speech audibility standard for hearing aids : how intelligible is speech with background noices at, for example, a party.
They have won the Signal Processing Society Best Paper award with this research and the ceremony will be held at the ICASSP 2017 in New Orleans
Richard: "It's a paper with massive impact. This audibility standard is being used worldwide 'as we speak'. We work on algorithms for hearing aids. This is a great example of work that is sponsored by the industry (Oticon, red.) with excellent research as a result."
