For the 2021 ASA Challenge, @nraj and I are working on the design of “A General-Purpose Pipeline for Interfacing the Tympan with an External Computer”.
The motivation for this project was to ensure that applications which have to run certain resource-heavy algorithms (e.g. machine learning) can work with the Tympan by decoupling these algorithms from the underlying audio processing on the Tympan. The algorithms could run on an external computer, using the input audio from the Tympan, and their output could be sent to the Tympan as commands. You can read our full submission here.
We will post an update on the forum as the project progresses and, in the meantime, we’re happy to receive any feedback or questions you have
