EarSaver: A Device to Detect Dangerous Audio Noises

Lorenzo De Lauretis, Tiziano Lombardi, Stefania Costantini
2020 European Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
The issue of noise pollution is becoming more and more relevant in our today's way of life. Studies have shown that some noise waves are especially damaging, triggering continuous harm to the nervous scheme with the resulting failure of listening capacity in some instances. Thanks to the latest technological findings, noises can be sampled and analyzed even on very tiny appliances that can possibly be carried anywhere. By testing the noise via a condenser microphone and evaluating the outcome
