Speech retrieval using phonemes with error correction

Corinna Ng, Justin Zobel
1998 Proceedings of the 21st annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '98  
In speech retrieval, text queries are matched to spoken-word recordings. We undertook a series of retrieval experiments on such speech documents, using both phonemes and words for matching text to speech. We found that, given a reliable automatic word-based process for speech recognition, phoneme-based retrieval can be as effective as word-based retrieval. However, retrieval is v.!orse with phoneme-based speech recognition. Error correction techniques, such as manual error correction of phoneme

Many factors impact caregivers' cognitive health and, by extension, their ability to provide care. This study examined the relationship between psychosocial factors and cognitive performance among dementia caregivers and established a virtual cohort of caregivers for future research. Data on 527 caregivers were collected via a Web-based survey that assessed cognitive performance. Caregiver data were compared to corresponding data from 527 age-, race-, gender-, and education-matched controls

Caregivers performed significantly worse than controls on 3 of 5 cognitive subtests. Stress, sleep, perceived support, self-rated health, years of caregiving, race, and gender were significant predictors of cognitive performance. In this sample of dementia caregivers, psychosocial factors interacted in complex ways to impact cognitive performance. Further investigation is needed to better understand how these factors affect cognitive performance among caregivers. This could be accomplished by the establishment of a virtual cohort that facilitates the development of digital tools to support the evaluation and management of caregiver needs in a manner that helps them remain effective in their caregiving roles.

Hybrid nanomaterials have shown great potential in regenerative medicine due to the unique opportunities to customize materials properties for effectively controlling cellular growth. We demonstrate the peptide nanofiber-mediated auto-oxidative polymerization of dopamine, resulting in stable aqueous dispersions of polydopamine-coated peptide hybrid nanofibers. The catechol residues of the polydopamine coating on the hybrid nanofibers are accessible and provide a platform for introducing

The resulting hybrid nanofibers exhibit attractive properties in their cellular interactions: they enhance neuronal cell adhesion, nerve fiber growth and growth cone area, thus providing great potential in regenerative medicine. Furthermore, the facile modification by pH-responsive supramolecular polymer analog reactions allows tailoring the functional properties of the hybrid nanofibers in a reversible fashion.

Background Adjuvant endocrine therapies are known to induce undesirable adverse effects such as vasomotor, vaginal and musculoskeletal symptoms among breast cancer patients. Drugs used in these therapies are often metabolised by cytochrome P450 (CYP) enzymes, in which their metabolising activities can be modified by single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in CYP genes and CYP genotypes. This review aims to explore whether SNPs or genotypes of CYP are associated with the occurrence, frequency and

Methods A literature review was conducted using five electronic databases, resulting in the inclusion of 14 eligible studies, and their findings were presented narratively. Selected items from the Strengthening the Reporting of Observational Studies in Epidemiology (STROBE) checklist were used for critical appraisal of the reporting quality of the included studies. Results Most of the included studies showed that SNPs or genotypes of CYP that modify its metabolising activity have no effect on the occurrence, frequency or severity of vasomotor symptoms, including hot flashes. One study showed no correlation of these genetic variations in CYP with musculoskeletal symptoms, and no data were available on the association between such genetic variations and vaginal symptoms. Conclusions Overall, genetic variations in CYP have no effect on the experience of hot flashes among breast cancer patients. We recommend exploration of the link between the active metabolites of chemotherapeutic drugs and the molecules shown to affect the occurrence or severity of hot flashes, and the establishment of the relationship between such genetic variations and patients' experience of musculoskeletal and vaginal symptoms. Subgroup analyses based on patients' duration of adjuvant endocrine therapies in such studies are recommended.

We have previously identified potent novel antimalarial compounds with an unknown mode of action. Results: A photo-reactive affinity capture method was used to identify parasite proteins that interact with these antimalarials. Conclusion: ACT-213615 interacts with Plasmodium falciparum multidrug resistance protein 1 (PfMDR1). Significance: This photo-reactive affinity capture method can be generally used to identify drug targets in live cells. A representative of a new class of potent

To identify the molecular target of this class of antimalarials, we employed a photo-reactive affinity capture method to find parasite proteins specifically interacting with the capture compound in living parasitized cells. The capture reagent retained the antimalarial properties of the parent molecule (ACT-213615) and accumulated within parasites. We identified several proteins interacting with the capture compound and established a functional interaction between ACT-213615 and PfMDR1. We surmise that PfMDR1 may play a role in the antimalarial activity of the piperazine-containing compound ACT-213615. Recently, we reported the synthesis of a new chemical class of antimalarials, discovered in a cell-based anti-proliferative screen (1). ACT-213615, a representative of this class of compounds, was shown to inhibit erythrocytic Plasmodium falciparum growth in vitro with IC 50 values in the low single digit nanomolar range. In vivo, the compound exhibited activity comparable with that of the reference drug chloroquine in the P. falciparum SCID mouse model.

Factors affecting speech retrieval

1998 5th International Conference on Spoken Language Processing (ICSLP 1998)   unpublished
Collections of speech documents can be searched using speech retrieval, in which the documents are processed by a speech recogniser to give text that can be searched by standard text retrieval techniques. Recognition is the translation of speech signals into either words or subword units such as phonemes. We investigated the use of a phoneme-based recogniser to obtain phoneme sequences. We found that phoneme recognition is worse than word recognition, because of lack of context and di culty in

Comparing the transcriptions of two di erent phonemebased recogniser, we found that the e ects of training using well-de ned phoneme data, the lack of a language model, and lack of a context-dependent model a ected recognition performance. Retrieval was based on n-grams. We found that trigrams performed better than quadgrams because the longer n-gram features contained too many transcription errors. Comparing the phonetic transcriptions from a word recogniser to transcriptions from a phoneme recogniser, we found that using 61 phones modelled with an algorithmic approach were better than using 40 phones modelled with a dictionary approach.
