J. Keith McElveen received his BS and MS degrees in electrical and electronic engineering from Clemson University in the 1980s. From there, he served in the Cold War, deployed overseas followed by years in R&D, particularly involving audio research. In the closing stages of the Cold War, his involvement in a major war crimes investigation triggered his career-long focus on extracting voices from cocktail party babble and other noises.
Keith’s talk will be on his company’s recent advances in spatial hearing technologies and how they hope to apply them to enable hearing in noisy, crowded, reverberant environments for individuals with hearing loss as well as electronic devices.
End Polio Now
We’ve has been working to eradicate polio and our goal of ridding the earth of this disease is within sight. We started in 1979 with vaccinations for 6 million children in the Philippines. Today, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan are the only countries where polio remains endemic.
Lose yourself in generous service and every day can be a most unusual day, a triumphant day, an abundantly rewarding day!
