    Bartling, Brian; Psarakis, Catherine (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    The Multi-Sensory Interactive Periodic Table (MSIPT) is described as a simulation product for the perceptualization of electron configurations, atomic radii, orbital structures, and chemical bonds of the elements ...
  • Frequency-Selective Silencing Device for Digital Filtering of Audible Medical Alarm Sounds to Enhance ICU Patient Recovery 

    Schlesinger, Joseph J.; Reynolds, Elizabeth; Sweyer, Brittany; Pradham, Alyna (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    Free-field auditory medical alarms, although widely present in intensive care units, have created many hazards for both patients and clinicians in this environment. The harsh characteristics of the alarm noise profile ...
  • From Program Music to Sonification: Representation and the Evolution of Music and Language 

    Taylor, Stephen (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    Research into the origins of music and language can shed new light on musical representation, including program music and more recent incarnations such as data sonification. Although sonification and program music have ...
  • Evaluating Two Ways to Train Sensitivity to Echoes to Improve Echolocation 

    Heller, Laurie M.; Schenker, Arley; Grover, Pulkit; Gardner, Madeline; Liu, Felix (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    We investigated whether training sighted individuals to attend to information in echoes could improve their active echolocation ability. We evaluated two training techniques that involved artificially generated sounds. Both ...
  • Spectral Parameter Encoding: Towards a Framework for Functional-Aesthetic Sonification 

    Tsuchiya, Takahiko; Freeman, Jason (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    Auditory-display research has had a largely unsolved challenge of balancing functional and aesthetic considerations. While functional designs tend to reduce musical expressivity for the fidelity of data, aesthetic or musical ...
  • Empirically Informed Sound Synthesis Application for Enhancing the Perception of Expressive Robotic Movement 

    Bellona, Jon; Bai, Lin; Dahl, Luke; LaViers, Amy (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInternational Community on Auditory Display, 2017-06)
    Since people often communicate internal states and intentions through movement, robots can better interact with humans if they too can modify their movements to communicate changing state. These movements, which may be ...
