We are delighted that Wiebke Middelberg won third prize and 2000 euros in prize money at the ARD/ZDF “»Frauen + Medientechnologie« ” Award 2022. The subject of her master’s thesis at the Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg is the processing of noisy audio signals using spatially distributed microphones. Using the example of a cocktail party: here, the intelligibility of a single voice from the mix of voices is to be increased, while all other sound sources, which are considered undesirable, are to be suppressed as far as possible. Application areas for new solutions using improved algorithms are not only in the hearing aid technology under investigation, but also, for example, in the speech control of digital media.
