Development of a tinnitus-monitoring earplug

Over 20 million people struggle with chronic tinnitus, many of whom deal with debilitating and extreme cases. To better understand such a widespread condition, a smart occluding intra-aural device capable of capturing biological signals and allowing for auditory transparency is used. With such a device the affects of tinnitus on the emotional health of individuals suffering from it can be better understood and eventually dealt with.  This ambitious project involves the development of a well performing algorithm capable of denoising the biological signals when the device is in transparency mode.
