Machine Learning Hearing Aid Personalization
Widex Evoke was the first hearing aid to use machine learning to deliver a truly personalized sound, in the moment, by letting users choose their listening intention and create their own personal listening preference via SoundSense Learn. SoundSense Learn takes this anonymized input from every user, collects it in the cloud, and then Widex experts analyze it to create a better experience for all users.
With data being collected from around the world, Widex says it will continue the quest for a “smarter tomorrow” where the AI-driven SoundSense Learn will help not only users, but also hearing care professionals converge towards “personalized perfected hearing”.
