Machines outperform the human ear

“Machines are becoming aware of their surroundings. They can recognize the same sounds that we humans continuously observe in our environment,” says Professor Tuomas Virtanen. His area of expertise is audio signal processing.

Virtanen develops computational methods that allow machines to identify and process individual sounds and entire soundscapes. Research in the field has been propelled forward by the advancements made in machine learning in the past few years.

“Machine learning has been around for decades, but deep learning has brought near-human accuracy to audio analysis.”
