“Hearables” – in-ear headphones with built-in microphones and signal processing capability – offer new opportunities to reproduce audio content in a way that adapts and responds to the listening context, e.g. background noise and personal preferences. The InHEAR project (Intelligent Hearables with Environment-Aware Rendering) will develop new algorithms to maximise the listener’s experience regardless of their listening context. The project is a collaboration between the University of Surrey, Bang & Olufsen and Aalborg University. You have a genuine opportunity to influence future generations of B&O products as well as to produce world-leading publishable and patentable research.
Two positions are available: one in machine listening and one in audio rendering. Funding includes a £15k pa stipend (tax-free) and waiver of UK/EU tuition fees.
