Pheobe Sun is currently completing a PhD in audio and speech quality of experience at the QxLab research group in the School of Computer Science at University College Dublin, with an emphasis on the cognitive-perceptual experience.
QxLab is interested in how people perceive quality. Everyday we interact with technology – talking on our smartphones or streaming YouTube or Netflix on our TVs. What we hear or see is processed and transported over a network by technology. Often noticeable and unnatural changes are introduced into the content and the Quality of Experience is the resulting degree of delight or annoyance experienced by the person. QxLab builds technologies to predict Quality of Experience so that it can be improved and sustained.
