Abstract: Current speech enhancement applications, such asbinaural hearing aids, mainly aim to suppress interference signals and enhance the target signal with preservation of binaural cues. However, in addition to the target signal, human beings are able to pay attention to other important or meaningfulsounds (e.g., the call from others) in daily conversation. This attention mechanism to meaningful signals is seldom considered in the state-of-the-art signal processing systems. In this paper, we propose an intelligent binaural speech enhancement model by extracting the meaningful signals as well as the target signal. Specifically, the proposed model consists of two main parallelprocesses: binaural target signal enhancement and binaural meaningful signal extraction, finally yielding the binaural outputs. Experimental result showed that the proposed system is able to not only suppress interfering noise signals, but also enhancetarget signal and meaningful signals.
