Abstract : We briefly summarize our key accomplishments during the grant period: These include the creation of bio-inspired systems that are important for improving speech intelligibility in noisy environments or for reducing noise exposure. They also include the creation of ultra-low-power electronics useful in portable hearing applications such as cochlear implants, hearing aids, hybrid hearing implants, intelligent personal protective equipment, and noise dosimeters. Together these accomplishments will be important in making miniature, intelligent hearing systems practical for many applications. The details are described in eight publications and three patents that are cited in the productivity section of this report.
