About the Event

The idea behind this meeting originated with the observation that there are few opportunities for people who study machine and biological hearing to interact - we tend to attend separate meetings, and publish in separate journals. Yet there is much to be gained through interactions.

Biological hearing systems provide the best example of competence in most perceptual problems of interest, and experiments targeting the right problems should thus provide clues to how to solve hard computational problems in audition, facilitating the design of machine systems to mirror our abilities. On the other hand, machine hearing must by necessity focus on the computational issues that make perceptual problems difficult, as these must be understood in order to achieve working systems.

Biological hearing research can thus benefit from the successes and failures of different approaches in machine hearing. Our goal is to bring together people in both communities to stimulate interaction. The meeting will be hosted by Boston University, co-sponsored by the Center for Computational Neuroscience and Neural Technology and the Hearing Research Center. The only goal for the workshop is talks and discussion.
