Question

Will machine learning hearing aids save the hearing care professional time? 

Answer

Certainly, and not just in post-fitting. The interface of SoundSense Learn within the EVOKE is incredibly simple and intuitive, so instructing the hearing aid wearer on using it only takes a few minutes. They just listen to the A to B comparisons and point to which option sounds better. 

This Ask the Expert is an excerpt from the interview, Evolve with Evoke: The World's First Real-Time Machine Learning Hearing Aid
