Is AI key to the future of hearing aids?

Stockport based Starkey are betting on AI being the next big technology in hearing aids. Starkey have developed the Livio AI. Livio AI is the world’s first hearing aid to utilise integrated sensors and artificial intelligence, and the first to track physical activity and cognitive health.

 

Until now, there has never been a device that tracks physical activity and cognitive health as measured by hearing aid use in social situations. Most fitness tracking devices use the wrist, but the ear provides far more accurate data – in fact, it’s the ideal spot for reliable tracking, and Livio AI is the first-ever device to take advantage of that.

 

Will Starkey's investment in AI pay off? We can't wait to see how the other leading manufacturer's respond to this.
