University of Oldenburg Develops Smart Hearing Aids

Led by Professor Dr Volker Hohmann, a hearing researcher at the University of Oldenburg, the CRC will receive up to 8.1 million Euros (USD $8.68 million) for a second funding phase running from 2022 to 2026. With the official title “Hearing Acoustics: Perceptual Principles, Algorithms, and Applications” (HAPPAA), the CRC is focusing on developing hearing aids and hearing assistance systems that use artificial intelligence (AI) to automatically adjust to different environments, making these devices more adaptable to the specific needs of individual users.
