Beltone Trust White Paper - Crosslink Directionality 2

ReSound Connect

A supercomputer can beat a human at chess but does it know what that human would like to eat for lunch? A computer that has followed the preferred eating patterns of a person over time could probably make a good guess, but would still guess incorrectly much of the time. There are many examples of how intelligence built into computers and smart devices is learning our routines and attempting to make our lives easier. Hearing aids are no exception. While most of the processing capabilities in hearing aids are dedicated to amplifying and treating the sound, there are also algorithms that control the sound processing based on observations of the acoustic input. And just like the super computer and eating patterns, a hearing aid can make the wrong guess with regard to what signal a user might want to hear. These wrong guesses can make it harder for users of hearing aids to hear what they want to hear. This is why Beltone has for a decade focused on how technology can be leveraged to let hearing aid users hear better in noise, but still hear all sounds around them similar to how a normal hearing person would hear.
