Lay Language Papers
2pAOb – Methane in the ocean: observing gas bubbles from afar
Understanding the various ways in which methane bubbles contribute to the global carbon cycle requires understanding these complicated details of a methane bubble’s lifetime in the ocean.
3aMU8 – Comparing the Chinese erhu and the European violin using high-speed camera measurements
Have you ever wondered what a violin solo piece like Paganini’s La Campanella would sound like if played on a Chinese erhu?
4aPPa24 – Effects of meaningful or meaningless noise on psychological impression for annoyance and selective attention to stimuli during intellectual task
the impact of meaningless and meaningful noises on selective attention and cognitive performance in volunteers were investigated
2pABa1 – Snap chat: listening in on the peculiar acoustic patterns of snapping shrimp, the noisiest animals on the reef
Since snapping shrimp produce the dominant sound in many marine regions, changes in their activity or population substantially alters ambient sound levels at a given location or time.
1aSA – On a Fire Extinguisher with Sound-wind for the Beginning Stage of Fire
There has been little advancement in the technology of a fire extinguisher in the past 50 years.
2pSC – How do narration experts provide expressive storytelling in Japanese fairy tales?
This work attempts to investigate the actual storytelling strategies of human narration experts for the purpose of ultimately reflecting them on the expressiveness of speech synthesis.
2aNS – How virtual reality technologies can enable better soundscape design
Researchers believe that the current technology enables us to create an application that immerses designers and stakeholders in the community to provide feedback on different soundscape designs.
4aEA1 – Aero-Acoustic Noise and Control Lab
During our daily lives, there are rarely significant pressure fluctuations in the air above common noises, but in special cases it happens.
1aNS5 – Noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) of smartphones
smartphones emit an audible buzz that, because of the close proximity to the ear, can degrade the call quality and cause annoyance.
2aABa3 – Indris’ melodies are individually distinctive and genetically driven
Indris (Indri indri) are the only lemurs that produce group songs and among the few primate species that communicate using articulated singing displays.
3pSC87 – What the f***? Making sense of expletives in The Wire
What makes the scene unusual dramatically is that, engrossed in their investigation, the two detectives communicate with each other using only the word, “f***” and its variants.
1aSC31 – Shape changing artificial ear inspired by bats enriches speech signals
Researchers recorded speech signals to explore if using shape change, inspired by the bats, could embed direction-dependent dynamic features into speech signals.
4pEA7 – Acoustic Cloaking Using the Principles of Active Noise Cancellation
Acoustic cloaking attempts to control the sound scattered from a solid object.
1aNS4 – Musical mind control: Human speech takes on characteristics of background music
This research uses a speech-in-noise paradigm to explore whether or not speakers also converge to non-linguistic signals in the environment
1pMU4 – When To Cue the Music
Symbolic music is music that is associated with a special meaning such as something funny as a sort of “punch line” to emphasize their humorous nature.
5aSC43 – Appropriateness of acoustic characteristics on perception of disaster warnings
This study focused on the influence of acoustic characteristics (voice gender, pitch, and speaking rate) of a warning call on the listeners’ perception of the call and tried to make suggestions for better communication.
4pBA1 – Kidney stone pushing and trapping using focused ultrasound beams of different structure
To achieve more versatile manipulation of stones, researchers are developing a new strategy to effectively trap a kidney stone in an ultrasound beam.
5aEA2 – What Does Your Signature Sound Like?
Researchers seek the possibility of recognizing and identifying a writer by using the sound of their handwriting.
