Mini Module - Amplification and Implantable Hearing Devices
Amplification and Assistive Devices (AAD)
Instructional Level: Fundamental
Tasks someone can do with no more than one second of thought may be automated with artificial intelligence (AI) now or in the near future. There have already been attempts to automate audiological tasks including audiometry and hearing instrument fitting. From machine learning to natural language processing, most advances like these are unlikely to replace audiologists, and some may actually help us succeed. This presentation provides fundamental education that audiologists need to thrive amid the rise of the machines.
