The Future Is Now: Hearing Aids & Artificial Intelligence

The Future Is Now - Hearing Aids & Artificial Intelligence
Hearing aid technology has vastly improved over the years—even the most basic of hearing aids can provide relatively clear and crisp sound, unlike their predecessors. In recent years, artificial intelligence has revolutionized the hearing aid industry, creating AI-equipped hearing aids that seamlessly transition and help you communicate in the most challenging listening environments.

What Is Artificial Intelligence?

The goal in artificial intelligence is to create systems that can function intelligently and independently. Using AI, a computer program has the ability to think on its own and learn from its surroundings and environment. The machine “learns” from its experience to perform human tasks and solve complex problems with intelligent solutions. Without realizing it, many of us are already using artificial intelligence in our everyday lives through devices like our smartphones.

How the Hearing Aid Industry Uses Artificial Intelligence

While artificial intelligence can be used across many industries for a multitude of reasons, one of the newest is the hearing aid industry. Now those who use hearing aids to hear the world around them can harness a tool with enhanced technology that enables them to hear more clearly no matter the environment. Not only do AI-equipped hearing aids adapt to the environment you’re in, but they are able to learn about your preferences for listening.

Previously, hearing aids worked by amplifying the sounds in the room, making it easier for those who are hard of hearing to pick up noises and conversations. However, instead of being able to focus on a particular person or sound, these hearing aids enhance all of the sounds in the room at once. This often results in too much noise being amplified into a user’s ear, making it extremely difficult for them to focus on a conversation when in an incredibly noisy environment.

In contrast, hearing aids equipped with AI technology provide the user with the ability to reduce background noise and hone in on particular sounds, voices, and conversations that you want to hear. Through this selection process, the machine begins to learn the user’s preferences and uses this information to automatically help them hear better when they find themselves in a similar situation in the future. Every time you return to that same location, whether it’s a restaurant, office, or school, the AI-equipped hearing aids will automatically adjust to the preferred settings.

Hearing Aids Using Artificial Intelligence Technology

At Hearing & Balance Doctors, we take pride in offering the latest technology to our patients and help them to achieve benefits AI-equipped hearing aids can provide. With the number of options on the market, choosing the right hearing aids can be a lengthy process—but it doesn’t have to be.

Let’s take a look at one of the best hearing aids equipped with artificial intelligence technology:

Starkey Livio AI Hearing Aids

Starkey’s most advanced hearing aids with artificial intelligence are Livio AI hearing aids, which provide the user with never-before-possible sound performance in any listening environment. With this technology, Livio AI hearing aids enable users to indicate their listening preferences in various settings, which then teaches the hearing aids to adjust in similar situations in the future automatically.

The revolutionary AI-technology isn’t the only benefits of the Starkey Livio AI hearing aids. Experience additional advantages, including:

  • Avoid having conversations overpowered by background noise through noise suppressing AI-technology.
  • Transition seamlessly from different listening environments, making the transitions more natural.
