Areas of research

ARI is a multidisciplinary research institution, working in application-oriented basic research. It is addressing question related to the 'chain of sound', ranging from sound generation over propagation to perception. The institute's work is focused on the following topics:

ARI is conducting research on the localization of sound source with neuroprostheses (cochlea implants), modeling and improvement of measures of noise attenuation for traffic, the phonetical acoustics of regional dialects, the improvement of perceptually motivated coding strategies (such as MP3), and the mathematical theory of signal decomposition.

The institute is led by Peter Balazs.
