Cubex Weekly TIP – You can measure listening through the eyes

On 18, May 2018 | In Weekly Tip | By Jerusha Shulberg

THIS WEEK’S TIP:
YOU CAN MEASURE LISTENING THROUGH THE EYES

 

This week, Senior Audiologist and MD of Cubex, Adam Shulberg is proud to be joined by Alison Stone, Audiologist & Training Manager at Oticon, a leading hearing technology based company in Denmark and part of the Eriksholm Research Centre.

We know that cognitive load is a silent consequence of hearing loss. With fewer sounds, poorer quality and less information being delivered to the brain, hearing and listening can be just like reading a book where key letters or words are missing. This requires use of long-term memory and our working memory becomes stressed and overloaded making it even harder to focus.

On this week’s TIP, Alison talks about a method used by Oticon and the Eriksholm Research team that measures the level of cognitive load and listening effort through the eyes.

Why hearing aids are so much more impressive than the iPhone X

On 11, Oct 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Rosie Williams

The release of the iPhone X has caused much of a stir in the technology world and we don’t just mean because of the price tag. Apple promise a new and improved facial recognition software, which uses biometrics to map the users face to 30,000 invisible dots using the TrueDepth camera.

Whilst Apple are not actually the first to release a facial recognition feature on a smart phone, they are the first to promise absolute reliability and security, ensuring that the tech cannot be easily tricked using a photograph or a mask.

This is all sounds very new and exciting and it certainly seems to have shaken up the smart phone market since they announced the new feature.

 

What are biometrics?

Biometry is the application of statistical analysis to biological data. Biometrics is the measurement of people’s physical and behavioral characteristics for use in some way,  currently mainly used for identification and verification.

Biometrics is a science we’re all becoming accustomed to in our day-to-day lives as technological innovation and personalization moves forward, such as fingerprint scanning on smart phones and biometric passports. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing aids.

Introducing the worlds first hearing aid with Biometric Calibration – Phonak Virto™ B

On 11, Oct 2017 | In Hearing Technology | By Jerusha Shulberg

First came the fingerprint, then the retina scan. Now, it’s all about the ear! These distinct parts of our bodies are unique to every individual and because they are unique, they can be used for biometrics. But what exactly is biometrics?

 

Each ear is unique, each ear hears differently

Biometrics is the measurement of people’s physical and behavioral characteristics that are mainly used for identification and access control. It’s something we’re all becoming accustomed to as innovation and personalization moves forward. For example, many smartphones have an integrated finger scan; biometric passports are standard today- even photographs can be sorted according to facial recognition. And now, this technology has made its way to hearing.
