Widex Evoke Machine-Learning
EVOKE hearing aids are the world’s first machine-learning hearing devices and were recently launched by Widex, a leader in hearing technology. Machine learning is technology that uses prior events to predict future behavior and adjusts settings based on that data. The more you wear these hearing aids, the more accurate their predictions become.
Here is what machine learning means for hearing aids: Your audiologist at Greentree Hearing and Audiology will to program the instruments for your hearing loss, but the need to get all of the settings just right for each and every listening environment will no longer be necessary. Unlike any other hearing aids you can buy, Widex EVOKE devices will keep learning and adapting to your preferences – and from others who wear the Evoke hearing aids.
