 (ăn′tē-noiz′, ăn′tī-)
1. Designed to reduce environmental noise, as in a community: an antinoise ordinance.
2. Capable of neutralizing the sound of another noise.
A technique for neutralizing unwanted sound, in which a second sound wave, identical to but out of phase with the unwanted sound, is used to cancel the unwanted sound.

(General Engineering) sound generated so that it is out of phase with a noise, such as that made by an engine, in order to reduce the noise level by interference

The audio is then analysed by an algorithm which calculates its cancelling "antinoise".
It has been proved that OFDM radar has strong abilities of antinoise and antijamming in [6].
The antinoise ability and convergence speed of an identification experiment are related to the constraints of the excitation trajectory.
In light of this advancement, efforts have been made in developing algorithms to integrate ELM and SR, thus exploiting the speed advantage and discriminative power of ELM and the antinoise performance and reconstruction ability of SR.
(3) The robustness and antinoise ability of SDAE-NN were better than BP-NN and other traditional NN algorithms.
FCN still demonstrates good agreement to the true value, indicating its advantages on the antinoise capability.
Meanwhile, the antinoise performance of the whole system is further enhanced with the help of insulating and damage-protecting cover.
We think the reason is that LSTM network usually has a certain antinoise ability, which means the input data with certain noise (not too much) only has little interference on the discriminant result ofLSTM and LSTM can automatically perceive and resist noise from the data.
The reconstructions with Gaussian noise are also considered to evaluate the antinoise ability of the above three algorithms; some related numerical simulation results are also presented.
The proposed method has following advantages: (1) the output signal presents good periodicity; (2) antinoise performance analysis shows that the SNR is increased; and (3) frequency response analysis indicates that SVVR serves as a band-pass filter because it can filter low- and high-frequency noise components.
When the PSNR is higher, the antinoise performance of the algorithm is better.
The experiments showed that the proposed algorithm has a strong antinoise ability and thus can improve FCM achieving better image segmentation results.
