This paper revisits the waveform paradigm for coding speech signals, using a multiscale recurrent-pattern matching approach. The so-called MMP (Multidimensional Multiscale Parser) algorithm uses a dictionary which is constantly updated with expansions, contractions, and concatenations of previously encoded segments. This provides a learning ability to the MMP, particularly suited for coding voiced and silent segments of speech. Additional features (nonuniform and auxiliary displacement

Current MMP algorithm achieves a fair-to-good objective score when operating at 8 kbps, as indicated by several speech-coding experiments. This indicates that it may be worthy to further investigate the use of the multiscale recurrent pattern matching paradigm for speech coding. 978-1-4244-5309-2/10/$26.00 ©2010 IEEE
