From mp3 to PARty: How signal processing, psychoacoustics and machine learning fit together
The talk will start with a brief historical overview: How mp3 and other audio coding formats got developed. To advance this technology, a lot of knowledge about our ears has been necessary.
Since then, we have learned much more about our ears and brain, as well as how we listen to the world around us. Cognitive effects have become more and more important. We really hear what we expect to hear. All this has been used in a lot of research over the years.
Currently, an important topic of our research in Ilmenau is finding out how we can reproduce immersive sound, the feeling of “being there”, over headphones. After approximately 50 years of research by others and contributions from myself, we can finally claim that we have solved this problem. The process of how we achieved it and what means we used will be included in the talk.
The talk will conclude by presenting ideas about future applications that may initially sound like science fiction, such as PARty, but we are working to transform them into reality.
