Theme Related Sessions

Special emphasis will be placed on emerging areas of noise control for the next 50 years. Topics may include:

  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning for noise control or background minimization for improved tele-commuting
  • Acoustic metamaterials and cloaking
  • Influence of high-performance and quantum computing on noise control
  • Psychoacoustics and neuroscience
  • UAVs and the future urban soundscape, etc.
