The Professorship for Audio Information Processing was initiated by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and is part of the Bernstein Center for Computational Neuroscience Munich. We investigate the information processing in the human auditory system and use this knowledge to improve hearing devices and audio systems. Our research focusses on signal coding for neuronal prostheses (cochlear implants), on the analysis of acoustic scenes, on signal processing models of the auditory system, on product sound quality, and on techniques for sound reproduction and the simulation of sound fields.
Topics in our lectures are psychoacoustics, audiological acoustics, electroacoustics, audio signal processing, technical acoustics and noise control. We also offer a range of seminars and lab courses.
