Applications are invited from motivated and eligible candidates for Summer Internship under SERB-DST funded project at Dept of Electronics and Communication Engineering, NIT Meghalaya.
Masking of interfering sounds in a crowded environment for hearing aid applications
This project involves the development of an algorithm for increasing speech intelligibility for hearing-impaired listeners in the presence of competing sounds. Identification of various features that distinguish interfering sounds from the target speech.
Development of deep neural network (DNN) based algorithm to address this problem. A deep neural network is trained to estimate the mask for a target talker in the presence of competing sounds based on auditory processing model.
Students pursuing the 3rd year of B.E./B.Tech. /B.Sc. (Engg) or 3rd or 4th year of Integrated M.E./M.Tech. the programme, 1st year of ME/M. Tech with an excellent academic background in terms of high ranks in university examinations.
Selected students may be paid stipend for the period of internship subjective to availability of funds.
