Cocktail Party Processing
The acoustic environment is typically composed of multiple simultaneous events. A remarkable achievement of the auditory system is its ability to disentangle the acoustic mixture and group the sound energy that originates from the same event or source. This process of auditory organization is referred to as auditory scene analysis. The cocktail party problem, or segregation of speech from interfering sounds, has proven to be extremely challenging from the computational standpoint.
