https://www.kitp.ucsb.edu/activities/hearing17 – The Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics hosts a month-long workshop on the Physics of Hearing – From Neurobiology to Information Theory and Back. Several members of COCOHA have been invited, to present our ideas and results, and to share insight with a great lineup of smart people working on speech analysis, compressed sensing, deep neural networks, and so-on.
http://telluride.iniforum.ch/2017/overview/ – Deep in the mountains of Colorado hides aa quaint old mining town where smart students and crazy scientists hole up for three weeks to try out new ideas and devices that combine robots and neurons. The COCOHA team is a driving force in this new edition. Will we discover a new way to solve the audio-brain decoding problem this time? Stay tuned!
http://www.aro.org/news/305742/ARO-2017-MidWinter-Meeting – The Midwinter Meeting of the Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO) is the premier venue for presenting results in Hearing Science. It draws auditory scientists and clinicians, and covers a wide range of topics of interest to us, including auditory attention, EEG, and hearing aids and cochlear implants.
http://www.listeninginto2030.org/future-focus Our partner Maria Chait participated in this workshop organized by Simon Carlile of Starkey, that aims to look beyond our horizon to what technology will offer to the hearing impaired (or not) of the future.
In this year’s workshop, several members from the COCOHA team participated in the Multimodal Effects on Auditory Cognition (MAC) workgroup. They were involved in a number of projects that advance previous auditory attention decoding work and tie this with a steered microphone array. A write-up on this series of projects is available here.

A band of smart students and scientists hole up in an old mining town hidden in the Colorado mountains to work on crazy new ideas involving science and technology. Several members of the COCOHA team attended last year’s workshop, and this year we are involved…
