Associate Professor Octav Chipara is the Principal Investigator for a grant recently awarded by the NSF. Fellow Computer Science faculty Bijaya Adhikari as well as Communication Sciences and Disorders faculty Inyong Choi and Yu-Hsiang Wu are Co-PIs.

The project, entitled SCH: Shallow and Deep Personalization for Hearing Aids "aims to develop two approaches for personalizing HAs with different trade-offs in the degree of personalization, the amount of user effort required to find a satisfactory configuration, and their effectiveness in handling hearing losses of varying severity. [...] The proposed research is anticipated to empower patients to become more involved in hearing care, improve HA satisfaction, and enrich their social interactions."

This four-year project has been awarded $1,199,085.
