Welcome to the ear canal!
A small Hearable in the ear is intended to combine various technologies of the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Oldenburg. In areas where hearing protection is worn anyway, it also offers an AI platform for intelligible communication, voice control and speech-based documentation, as well as acoustic monitoring for quality control. The institute will present its technologies at the digital Hannover Messe - in an expert talk on April 13 and in individual meetings.
Acoustic quality control with AI: train your own AI models, improve quality control
Many companies do not have the confidence to try out artificial intelligence models. These models can, after all, quickly become confusing. As a result, they have a wealth of untapped potential for quality control. The new IDMT-ISAAC software now makes it possible for users without any expert knowledge of AI to also benefit from artificial intelligence applications. IDMT-ISAAC is set to be showcased at the Hannover Messe from April 12-16, 2021.
Since October 2020 Fraunhofer IDMT is an Associated Member of the world's leading professional association for the preservation and exploitation of broadcasting archives.
For Fraunhofer IDMT, the associated membership is an important step to learn more about the needs of broadcasting archives and to align research and development to these needs.
Red when mumbling!
Scientists at Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg are developing solutions to improve the intelligibility of speech in media. Algorithms for automatic measurement, evaluation and presentation of speech intelligibility facilitate the work of sound engineers in film, game and audio productions. With the implementation of intelligibility technology in Steinberg's current production solution Nuendo, a traffic light now indicates how well the spoken words will be objectively received by listeners.
Fraunhofer Solution Days 2020: The Fraunhofer IDMT presents its technologies for a hearable for use in smart industrial workplaces.
Wouldn’t it be great if an intelligent button in your ear could protect your hearing from loud ambient noise and at the same time enable crystal-clear communication with people and machines? On the Fraunhofer IDMT’s virtual exhibition stand at the Fraunhofer Solution Days 2020, experts will present their latest developments for a hearable for use in smart industrial workplaces. Participation is free of charge.
Fraunhofer Solution Days: AI-based software tool for automated quality control
Fraunhofer IDMT has developed a software tool for quality inspectors based on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which automates and simplifies the analysis of industrial sounds, for example in welding processes. Thanks to pre-built AI models, established methods for audio analysis and application-specific sensor data, companies can use it to improve their quality control decisively. Even without AI expert knowledge, statements can be made quickly and reliably regarding the quality of products and manufacturing processes during production and in the final quality inspection. The Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT will be presenting the new software at its virtual booth in the "Plant and Mechanical Engineering" area of the first virtual Fraunhofer trade fair, the "Fraunhofer Solution Days 2020".
Fraunhofer IDMT presents Trusted AI Solutions for Media Management
Ilmenau, Germany, 8 September 2020 – Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology (Fraunhofer IDMT) is today launching its virtual exhibition, part of the IBC Showcase, which will take place 8-11 September, from 10am to 8pm CET daily at ibc2020.digitalmedia.fraunhofer.de.
»MOND« project will facilitate better diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy
It is the details that make all the difference. Epileptic disorders can vary greatly in terms of type, cause and severity. This makes having accurate knowledge of the person’s individual medical condition very important when choosing a custom-fit therapy. To date, physicians have to rely on accounts by the person concerned and those close to them when estimating how often seizures occur. However, this information is often incomplete, as seizures are not always consciously perceived. The partners in the »MOND« project are working on a solution: A mobile neurosensing system suitable for everyday use that detects epileptic seizures automatically and documents them for the purpose of medical anamnesis and optimisation of patient safety. The project, which started in April 2020, is coordinated by the Division Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology of the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Oldenburg.
