Hearing loss is one of the most affecting conditions which you will find all over the world. According to an American study, almost 48 million individuals are suffering from this condition in the US. Every individual has a different degree of hearing loss according to their age group as reported by the Hearing Loss Association of America. Most people are unaware of the fact that hearing loss is the 3 most common physical ailments after arthritis and heart disease.
Across the world, a lot of efforts were made by doctors and scientists to improve the quality of life of the hearing impaired along with the effectiveness of hearing aid technology. To upgrade with new technologies researchers are every day exploring how AI intelligence can be implanted in hearing and predict the risk of deafness early in life.
How Is AI Used In Hearing Aids?
Nowadays many devices are coming with Artificial intelligence which helps in improving the listening experience as specifically; they help in understanding the speech in background noise. Hearing aids particularly help in amplifying the sound like speech along with suppressing the background noise. With the hearing aids, people can also identify and separate multiple speakers. Ai technologies are known to be very beneficial in environments.
With the up-gradation of hearing aids with Ai hearing aids are becoming just like a computing device that can easily track our fitness with audio streaming and enhance sound for the end-user. With the help of advanced technologies like AI, it also helps in enabling a good higher-level performance for hearing as automatically it helps in adapting various types of environments and removing unwanted noise through noise cancellation.
Improve voice assistant for the deaf
Hearing aids coming with implanted AI also have very popular voice assistant features like Amazon Echo and Apple Siri. This feature has been researched by world-class growing researchers which will make a huge difference in the development in the field by tweaking the systems slightly.
Many worldwide companies are developing AI-based hearing aids which will help in providing more refinements, experience. With the help of AI, the device can easily use speech perception because of its algorithm.
Easily translation of sign language into speech and text
AS every company wants to grow and earn a good amount, now they are using the upgraded technology in their hearing aid which is Artificial intelligence. Companies are facilitating AI which will help people to translate audio into text instantaneously. Some companies are also coming with an app that will help people with hearing loss which can translate sign language into text and speech.
Clear lip reading through sensors
With the new Ai feature in hearing aids, it is possible to overcome one most difficult challenges that people with hearing loss face. With the help of AI now hearing aids come with a lip-reading algorithm that generates a closed caption for its deaf user. With this developed technology it has a great potential which helps in improving the hearing aids and make a friendly environment for the hearing impaired people. Apart from this it also helps in recognizing the speech in the noisy background also.
Easy raw Language translation
Many tech giants are working with AI as to how they can implement this in hearing aids as it is becoming a part of larger the larger corporate social responsibility program of many big companies. Hearing aids are developing as headsets that are embedded with AI-powered communication technology. This system has an inbuilt automatic speech recognition which will help in converting raw spoken.
So with all the advancement and up gradation, hence it is proven that artificial intelligence is a game-changer in the field of hearing aids. This advancement not only led people to improve in their living standards but along helped in getting better hearing impairment. It also helps in the detection of hearing and prevents its high risk of degree at an early stage which helps in leading to a healthy lifestyle.
