Guodong Zhou, Lingpeng Yang, Jian Su, Donghong Ji
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper proposes a Mutual Information Independence Model (MIIM) to segment and label sequential data.  ...  In addition, a variable-length pairwise mutual information-based modeling approach and a kNN algorithm using kernel density estimation are proposed to capture the long state dependence and the observation  ...  Given an observation sequence (1) Traditionally, HMM segments and labels sequential data in a generative way by making a context independent assumption that successive observations are independent given  ...

Outlier Correction for Local Distance Measures in Example Based Speech Recognition

Mathias De Wachter, Kris Demuynck, Dirk Van Compernolle
2007 2007 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing - ICASSP '07  
Experiments on three low-level acoustic tasks show that "data sharpening" results in a substantial improvement, while "adaptive kernels" have minimal effect.  ...  In this paper, we derive two techniques inspired by non-parametric density estimation that explicitly adjust the distance measure based on the position of the reference vector in its class.  ...  Choi and Hall [11] used the same idea as a preprocessing step for non-parametric density estimation, calling it data sharpening.  ...
