Abstract for gales_rt04_modelling

Dec 2004

This paper describes the use of several advanced acoustic modeling techniques for the 2004 CU-HTK large vocabulary speech recognition systems. These techniques include Gaussianization for speaker normalization, discriminative Cluster Adaptive Training (CAT), Subspace for Precision And Mean (SPAM) modeling of inverse covariances, and discriminative complexity control. Acoustic models featuring these techniques were integrated into a state-of-the-art 10 real-time multi-pass system with sophisticated adaptation for performance evaluation. Experimental results are presented on both broadcast news (BN) and conversational telephone speech (CTS) transcription tasks.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
