Conference "Science Tuesdays" in région Centre - Bourges

Muséum d'histoire naturelle, February 10th 2009


Volcanology, cardiology, astronomy... For the last few decades sound has taken a special place in the representation of scientific data. Consequence of the development of computers and software, sound is becoming a vector of information in the understanding of the world around us.

On the one hand the automation of digital data collection and on the other hand their massive processing by dedicated software is creating a new form of data presentation - sonification. Sonification is the use of sound in order to perceive auditory data. It is the acoustic representation of measured data.
