Abstract: Current speech enhancement applications, such as binaural hearing aids, mainly aim at suppressing interference signals and preserving the target signal with its binaural cues. However, in addition to the target signal, human beings are able to catchother important or meaningful sounds (e.g., calls from others) in daily conversation. This attention mechanism. to meaningful signals is seldom taken into consideration in state-of-the-art signalprocessing systems. In this paper, we propose an intelligent binaural speech enhancement model by extracting the meaningful signals as well as enhancing the target signal. In particular, the proposed model consists of two main parallel processes: binaural target signal enhancement and binaural meaningful signal extraction, and finally yields the binaural outputs. Experimental results showed that the proposed system is able to notonly suppress the interfering noise signals, but also enhance the target signal and non-target meaningful signals.
