The SONICOM consortium is growing. The project partners are in need of PhD students, post-docs and research assistants to join the AR/VR revolution.
Research Associate in Machine Learning-Based Spatial Audio
Closing Date: 20 September 2021
Imperial College London have a research associate (postdoc) position to work on spatial audio processing and spatial hearing using methods from machine learning. The aim of the project is to design a method for interactively fitting individualised filters for spatial audio (HRTFs) to users in real-time based on their interactions with a VR/AR environment. We will use meta-learning algorithms to minimise the time required to individualise the filters, using simulated and real interactions with large databases of synthetic and measured filters. The project has potential to become a very widely used tool in academia and industry, as existing methods for recording individualised filters are often expensive, slow, and not widely available for consumers.
