Entanglement and Renormalisation for Quantum Fields (ERQUAF)

Start date: Feb 1, 2017, End date: Jan 31, 2022,

Over the past fifteen years, the paradigm of quantum entanglement has revolutionised the understanding of strongly correlated lattice systems. Entanglement and closely related concepts originating from quantum information theory are optimally suited for quantifying and characterising quantum correlations and have therefore proven instrumental for the classification of the exotic phases discovered ...

Robust Speech Encoding in Impaired Hearing (RobSpear)

Start date: Oct 1, 2016, End date: Sep 30, 2021,

The prevalence of hearing impairment amongst the elderly is a stunning 33%, while the younger generation is sensitive to noise-induced hearing loss through increasingly loud urban life and lifestyle. Yet, hearing impairment is inadequately diagnosed and treated because we fail to understand how the components that constitute a hearing loss impact robust speech encoding. A recent and ground-breakin ...
