James A. (Andy) Moorer: The Future of Technology - Looking Forward by Looking Back

CCRMA-Stanford University - Wed, 11/08/2017 - 00:42
Date:  Mon, 11/27/2017 - 5:30pm - 7:00pm Location:  CCRMA Classroom [Knoll 217] Event Type:  Guest Colloquium In 2000, the author published an article entitled "Audio in the New Millennium", using the author's experience to project 20 years into the future. Today we are 17 years into that projection. Comparisons of the state of the art with the projections lead to some startling observations with profound implications for the future of the relation between humans and technology. For instance, it is not hard to see that audio is the most powerful and critical medium today - more ubiquitous than even television. It was thought originally that television would entirely replace radio, but now we rely on radio to talk to our friends and stream our music, relegating television to the home or perhaps the sports bar.

Modeling fine time structure in the brain

CCRMA-Stanford University - Tue, 11/07/2017 - 17:54
Date:  Fri, 01/19/2018 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar We really don't know how auditory *information* is represented in the brain. The easiest approach relies on the rate profile, simply a measure of how fast a group of neurons is firing. But the rate profile ignores a lot of information in the exact timing of each spike.  And at a higher level there are oscillatory representations. All of these representations can be used to encode information, but which is most important and leads to the best model of auditory perception?

Weighing acoustic factors in music and language during development

CCRMA-Stanford University - Sat, 11/04/2017 - 00:20
Date:  Fri, 12/01/2017 - 10:30am - 12:00pm Location:  CCRMA Seminar Room Event Type:  Hearing Seminar Christina M. Vanden Bosch der Nederlanden will be talking about the differences between speech and music when we develop our auditory brains. They seem pretty different to us now, but how do our young brains parse the cachophony of sounds and decide that some sounds are meant to be recognized as words, and other sounds are just to make us feel good.  Or are they both?

Who: Christina M. Vanden Bosch der Nederlanden
What: Weighing acoustic factors in music and language during development
When: 10:30AM on Friday December 1, 2017
Where: CCRMA Seminar Room, top floor of the Knoll at Stanford
Why: How do we learn the meaning (or not) of sounds??
