Question

How does the Widex EVOKE hearing aid continue to evolve?

Answer

The current machine learning algorithm, SoundSense Learn, learns each time the hearing aid wearer uses it. In time, we will start to identify patterns in the pathways of the learning processes of the algorithm. Through further analysis of this data, we are confident that SoundSense Learn will become more agile. This analysis will result in even faster learning. We will also look for patterns and trends showcasing what hearing aid wearers want from sounds in real-life. This will impact how we think about our future hearing aid sound. The future is very exciting, and the potential of smartphone connectivity is huge.
