In order to further promote the development of domestic artificial hearing technology, especially the interdisciplinary and cross industry cooperation and exchange, from April 9 to 10, Tianlai Laboratory of Tencent conference, together with Shenzhen University, South China University of technology and Guangdong Provincial People's Hospital, held the 2021 cross-border Seminar on artificial hearing technology in Shenzhen (hereinafter referred to as the Seminar). More than 100 experts, scholars and postgraduates from hospitals, universities, enterprises and social organizations from home and abroad participated in the two-day seminar, focusing on the development and breakthrough of domestic artificial hearing aid technology, and 11 users of cochlear implant and other hearing aids were invited to participate in the seminar to conduct diversified, open and in-depth industry wide exchanges.


Objective to explore the application and future of artificial hearing aid technology, and gather the strength of the whole industry for the development of domestic artificial hearing technology

This seminar has various forms of communication, including three keynote reports, five round table discussions, ten group reports (including 37 oral reports) and two wall newspaper displays (including 24 wall newspapers). It is widely welcomed by the participants and has a warm exchange.

For the rehabilitation of cochlear implant users after surgery, Professor Fu Qianjie from UCLA School of medicine gave a keynote report entitled "how to optimize the hearing rehabilitation of cochlear implant patients?". Professor Fu first mentioned that cochlear implant technology has developed rapidly in recent years, and the average effect has been greatly improved. But he also mentioned that the difference between individuals is increasing. Therefore, he has focused on analyzing many factors related to the poor hearing effects of cochlear users, which can be classified as personal factors, operative factors, postoperative adjustment factors, and finally mentioned the influence of rehabilitation training. This report analyzes all links in the whole chain of cochlear implantation from pre operation to post operation, which has reference significance for patients or parents, audiologists, surgeons and rehabilitation teachers.

Professor Liu Yuhe of the first Medical College of Peking University published the research results on the theme of auditory cortex plasticity on the spot. He focused on the premise of cochlear implantation and focused on the auditory cortex plasticity of infants. Through the relevant experiments on 22 infants who met the cochlear implantation standards in the Department of Otorhinolaryngology of the First Hospital of Peking University, Finally, the influence of age and other inherent factors on the effect of cochlear implantation is realized by influencing the activation mode and development process of auditory cortex.

During the round table forum, more than 30 top Chinese and international experts, including Lu Feng, director of cochlear implant Committee of China Association for the deaf, Huang Zhiwu, Professor of the Ninth People's Hospital Affiliated to Medical College of Shanghai Jiaotong University, Xi Xin, researcher of PLA General Hospital, and Zhao hang, doctor of rehabilitation science department of East China Normal University, also focused on the cross border development of cochlear implant technology 》The topics of "cochlear implant dual-mode intervention", "over-the-counter hearing aids and auxiliary hearing earphones", "what kind of Audiology talents need to be trained in Colleges and universities in the future" and "current situation and development trend of Internet and real-time audio and video technology in remote listening service" were carefully prepared, involving the latest research progress and new concepts and technologies in the industry, not only the development of the industry, but also the development of the industry The impact of the sparks of science and technology, but also into the touching human feelings.

Adhering to the concept of science and technology for the good, Tencent Teana laboratory helps to build an information barrier free society

As the top audio communication and processing R & D team of Tencent conference, Tencent Teana laboratory has been continuously exploring audio AI technology since its establishment, always adhering to the concept of science and technology for the good, and using science and technology to help public welfare.

In the round table forum on April 10, shangshidong organized Professor Li Guoping of Southampton University (online), director Li Hongtao of China hearing and language rehabilitation research center (online), Dr. Tian Hongbin of Bo hearing aid (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (online), Mr. Wang Ningyuan of Xiao Nan, Mr. shichengchuan of Yinshu technology, and bilateral cochlear implants for senior students of Jiangsu University Li Jiawen and other experts discussed the role and trend of Internet and real-time audio and video technology in remote listening service. This paper discusses how Internet technology can help remote hearing service, how to combine with traditional offline hearing service, and how to improve the comprehensive experience of cochlear implant and hearing aid users in hearing screening, hearing test, self and remote fitting, and long-term hearing rehabilitation.


The development of artificial hearing aid technology is a cross-border journey, and Tencent Tianlai laboratory will open its way with technology and platform

Deafness and hearing loss are major public health problems in the world. According to the latest data of the World Health Organization, there are about 466 million people suffering from hearing loss, which is more than 5% of the world's population. Hearing aids, cochlear implants and other typical human auditory assistive technologies are used to help hearing-impaired people recover or improve their auditory perception and speech communication ability It's the main means.

However, artificial hearing aid technology is a complex system engineering, from research and development, production to clinical application and rehabilitation training, involving many fields in engineering, physics, medicine, biology, linguistics and other disciplines. Therefore, the development of artificial hearing aid technology will need the strength of the whole industry.

In the current new situation, improving the basic speech communication ability and advanced auditory perception (such as environmental sound recognition, music perception, Chinese perception, etc.) of users of artificial hearing technology in complex acoustic environment (such as noisy environment, network conference, etc.) is still the key problem to be solved urgently.

In the future, Tencent Teana lab will give full play to the advantages of Teana AI audio technology and the resources and connectivity of Tencent platform, gather the cutting-edge forces from different disciplines and industries, use science and technology to help the public welfare, join hands with people from all walks of life to pay attention to the physical and mental rehabilitation of hearing-impaired people, and spare no effort to boost the development of artificial hearing aid technology, so as to build an information barrier free society.
