The math professor with a Grammy will talk in Manchester this month
Posted by David Brooks | Friday, November 2, 2012
Kevin Short, the only mathematics professor I’ve ever heard of who has won a Grammy, will give a talk Nov. 13 at UNH-Manchester called “Finding Signals in the Noise,” about the mathematical modeling of sound.
Short, professor of mathematics at UNH, was cowinner of a Grammy in 2008 when his algorithms were used to clean up a 1949 Woody Guthrie record. He also created one of the first spinoffs by a UNH professor, a music-processing app called Chaoticom, and has a new signal-processing spinoff that is aiming to tackle the “cocktail party” syndrome for hearing aids, and got $1.3 million in funding this year. (I wrote about it for UNH Magazine.)
He will speak at an event held by the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers on Nov. 13.
This event will take place at UNH Manchester from 7 to 9 p.m., in room P126 of the Pandora Mill building, located at 88 Commercial St., first floor.
