Widex is the first hearing aid company to use AI to optimize hearing aid performance in real time. Powered by AI, Widex SoundSense Learn processes inputs from connected hearing aids throughout the world and shares anonymized data with a cloud-based AI system.
HAUPPAUGE, NEW YORK, October 27, 2020 — Having transformed the performance of a broad spectrum of consumer and industrial products, artificial intelligence (AI) is now set to revolutionize the quality of a product that the U.S. National Institutes of Health says half of consumers aged 75 and over desperately need: hearing aids.
Bringing opportunity to fruition, Widex is the first hearing aid manufacturer to utilize real-time AI to create a better, more natural and personalized sound experience for hearing aid users. “By applying artificial intelligence, a hearing solution learns how users prefer various listening environments and gives them greater control over their hearing experience,” Widex Head of Audiology Lise Henningsen said. “By being the first to embrace AI, Widex benefits from years of continuous machine learning and hearing aid optimization that other hearing aid manufacturers have not yet developed. It is a key reason Widex is able to deliver its revolutionary natural sound.”
Powered by AI, Widex SoundSense Learn processes inputs from connected hearing aids throughout the world and shares anonymized data with a cloud-based AI system. The system then continuously learns how to further optimize hearing aid settings in different situations for specific wearers.
Widex SoundSense Learn presents users with A-B comparisons to begin understanding how a person wearing compatible Widex hearing aids prefers sound in an environment. SoundSense Learn manages three acoustic parameters — low, mid, and high frequencies — which can each be set to 13 different levels, resulting in more than 2,000 possible settings.
To A-B test each setting would require more than 2 million tests, but by using the power of machine-learning algorithms, Widex SoundSense Learn requires only about a dozen comparisons to calculate the optimal settings for the individual person. The SoundSense Learn algorithms also track the user’s individual adjustments and draw from other user settings stored in the cloud to more precisely tailor the hearing aids to one’s surroundings.
Implement Artificial Intelligence using Artificial Intelligence. Artificial Intelligence (AI) requires everybody’s interest and commitment.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is obviously a developing power in the technology business. Companies can utilize AI for everything from mining social information to driving engagement.
