MIP1 Modelling energetic masking and signal component misalignment

Macroscopic models predict the influence of energetic maskers on speech intelligibility surprisingly well. However, when comparing confusions for individual noisy speech tokens (i.e. microscopic modelling), the listener-model fit is often very poor. It is likely that incorrect allocations of foreground and background audible components is responsible for the poor fit.

Goal: This project aims to develop models of audible signal component allocation based on (i) simulations of energetic masking incorporating level adaptation and (ii) model-based decoding of foreground and background components.

Relevance: Detailed intelligibility models have numerous applications in predicting the effect of noise on listeners and in measuring the intelligibility of generated speech in realistic conditions.
