Einladung zu AES-ARI-Talk "Sound localization from an information-theoretic perspective" von Jonas Reijniers am 14.01.2019

Gerne möchten wir Sie zu einem interessanten AES-ARI-Talk von Jonas Reijniers im neuen Jahr einladen:

Sound localization from an information-theoretic perspective

Termin: Montag, 14.01.2019 um 16:00h

OrtInstitut für Schallforschung, Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften, Wohllebengasse 12-14, 1040 Wien, Vortragsraum (Erdgeschoß).

Abstract zum Vortrag: In this talk we will look at sound localization from an information theoretic perspective. Indeed, sound localization can be viewed as an encoding-decoding operation: spatial information is encoded by the head/ears in the acoustic signals that arrive at our tympanic membranes, and this information is then decoded by our brain, and obviously, some information may be lost during this process. From this viewpoint, our ear morphology has been optimized through evolution as a ‘codec’ operating in the physical domain, such that the spatial information that is relevant for survival can be transferred with maximum efficiency. I’ll finish by describing the new human HRTF measurement method we developed in the course of this research. The method is low cost (<40 euros), fairly easy to carry out, and can be done at home, hence, it may make personalized audio accessible to the larger public.

Die Veranstaltung ist kostenlos und eine Anmeldung ist nicht erforderlich.
