Machine-Learning Algorithm for Improved Speech Intelligibility in Noise
TS-042266 — A monaural machine-learning algorithm for classifying time-frequency units in an unknown signal, which results in marked speech-intelligibly improvements in noisy signals.
A primary complaint of hearing-impaired (HI) listeners is poor speech recognition in background noise. This issue can be quite debilitating and persists despite considerable efforts to improve hearing technology. Despite considerable effort, monaural (single-microphone) algorithms capable of incre…

Sustained Release Microparticles for the Treatment of Ocular Diseases
TS-038312 — A novel, intravitreal microparticle injection capable of controlled-release of protein therapies (including anti-VEGF) for tunable periods of 6-12 months after injection for the treatment of age-related macular degeneration.
Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is the leading cause of blindness in individuals 65 and older and is the third leading cause of blindness worldwide. Wet AMD is characterized by abnormal growth of leaky blood vessels leading to damage to the macula of the retina resulting in vision loss and …

Machine-Learning Algorithm for Improved Speech Intelligibility in Noise
TS-038074 — A monaural machine-learning algorithm for classifying time-frequency units in an unknown signal, which results in marked speech-intelligibly improvements in noisy signals.
Wireless carriers receive daily complaints about poor speech recognition in background noise during calls and are constantly looking for methods to improve especially in light of recent forays into VOIP. The ability to discriminate between speech and noise in an audio signal then is an extremely i…

Multi-carrier processing in auditory prosthetic devices
TS-014871 — Encoding strategy for improvement of speech understanding in a noisy environment for audiotory prosthetic devices.
There are about 275 million adults globally with moderate to severe hearing loss and 360 million adults with mild hearing loss. The current solutions to allow these people to hear better include hearing aids, hearing loss counseling, cochlear implants, alerting devices, and other communication aid…
