Personalization of Medical Signal Processing Systems.

Prof. Bert de Vries is per 1 april 2012 benoemd tot deeltijdhoogleraar Personalization of Medical Signal Processing Systems aan de faculteit Electrical Engineering van de Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e).

Prof. Bert de Vries was appointed part-time professor of Personalization of
Medical Signal Processing Systems in the Department of Electrical Engineering
at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) on April 1, 2012. He will deliver
his inaugural lecture on Friday, September 13, 2013.

About the lecture
Despite a decade of steady industrial and academic investment in signal
processing technology for hearing aids, about 20% of patients remain
unhappy with the sound quality of their instruments. As it turns out, we
can design a fine hearing aid for a given person in any given situation, but
we don't have enough upfront information to design a great solution for
an unknown client who lives in a volatile acoustic world. Therefore,
hearing aids must be both adaptable to environmental context and
personalizable by the patient. In this lecture I will address design
challenges of adaptable hearing aids, and more generally of signal
processing systems, which can be personalized in situ by end users.
I will discuss a few salient properties of a successful adaptive and
personalized signal processing system, namely the brain. In the end,
biological information processing provides an inspiring reference for
engineers, whether one is designing hearing aids, personalized
lighting systems or any other intelligent ambient agent.
