—This letter proposes a new variable tap-length least-mean-square (LMS) algorithm for applications in which the unknown filter impulse response sequence has an exponential decay envelope. The algorithm is designed to minimize the mean-square deviation (MSD) between the optimal and adaptive filter weight vectors at each iteration. Simulation results show the(More)
This paper compares two methods for extracting room acoustic parameters from reverberated speech and music. An approach which uses statistical machine learning, previously developed for speech, is extended to work with music. For speech, reverberation time estimations are within a perceptual difference limen of the true value. For music, virtually all early(More)
Wind can induce noise on microphones, causing problems for users of hearing aids and for those making recordings outdoors. Perceptual tests in the laboratory and via the Internet were carried out to understand what features of wind noise are important to the perceived audio quality of speech recordings. The average A-weighted sound pressure level of the(More)
abStract Propagation of sound from a source to a receiver in an enclosure can be modeled as an acoustic transmission channel. Objective room acoustic parameters are routinely used to quantify properties of such channels in the design and assessment of acoustically critical spaces such as concert halls, theatres and recording studios. Traditionally, room(More)
Lettuce seedlings are attracting interest in the computing world due to their capacity to become hybrid circuit components, more specifically, in the creation of living 'wires'. Previous studies have shown that seedlings can be hybridised with gold nanoparticles and withstand mild electrical currents. In this study, lettuce seedlings were hybridised with a(More)
