Hello. I’d like to draw the attention of the community to the BioAid research project. We have developed a novel sound-processing algorithm for hearing aids based on our knowledge of the signal processing that occurs in the human auditory system.
To get the algorithm out of the laboratory and reach a larger audience, we recently released an implementation of the algorithm in the form of an iOS app. This will turn any recent iOS device into a basic hearing aid. The app is completely free, has no restricted functionality, and contains no advertising. This is a completely non-profit effort. The algorithm source code is also freely available for the curious.
Due to limitations with the hardware, it is certainly not going to replace modern high-end commercially available hearing aids in many situations. However, we hope that the device will benefit some people in certain situations. This is a research tool, so we’d love to hear any feedback, positive or otherwise.
I’m new here, so can’t go about posing links yet, but a web search for bioaid will bring up a website with plenty of information. Thanks for looking
