Methods in EECS are applied to increase our understanding of how humans communicate using their various senses. Topics include models for the production of speech, the sensory reception of sound by the ear, the perception of sounds by listeners, and perception of visual information. Applications include the development of aids and prosthetic devices for the impaired—such as hearing aids and retinal implants—as well as automatic speech recognition and synthesis for improved communications with machines.
