Member of Team Cloud DX, winner of the first-ever Bold Epic Innovator XPRIZE. STAR contributed our patented acoustic cough-analysis algorithms to Cloud DX’s design and implemented a cloud-based service for their award-winning device.
It is with great excitement that STAR Analytical Services announces the award of a grant, SIRCE, from the National Institutes of Health. With the innovative use of mathematical techniques and algorithm development, STAR proposes to change how hearing aid users experience reverberant spaces. This project will support a hearing aid-compatible system for listeners to hear conversations and other sounds without the interference of reverberation and strong echoes.
STAR Analytical Services is pleased to announce the award of SIBAL, an NIH grant, to develop an environmental listening assistant. With state of the art mathematical techniques and algorithm development, STAR aims to develop a room-infrastructure system for hearing aid wearers and hearing-impaired listeners to be able to hear clearly in complex audio environments., This will give them the best renditions of what they want to hear. See the demo below for as taste of what is to come.
STAR Analytical Services announces the award of a 3-year $1,500,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to develop an assistive conversation system for hearing-impaired listeners, including many aging baby-boomers, who have difficulty understanding and participating in conversations in noisy environments. The proposed project will extend STAR’™s previous work on novel techniques to suppress distracting sounds and enhance conversational speech. The resulting appliance will enable listeners to create an immersive virtual acoustic reality. In 2010, STAR received a small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from NIDCD, an institute of NIH, to improve the lives of people with communication disorders. This new grant extends that project into phase two.
STAR Analytical Services announces the award of a $160,000 grant from the National Institutes of Health to apply advanced mathematical techniques to the development of smart sensors for assistive hearing devices. STAR received the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) award from NIDCD, an institute of NIH, to improve the lives of people with communication disorders To hear a demonstration of this processing, with a stirring speech and a fascinating discussion of the mathematical techniques, review the samples below.
