  1. 1. Human perception in speech processing

    Author : Volodya Grancharov; Bastiaan Kleijn; Peter Kabal; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; quality assessment; speech enhancement; postfilter; Telecommunication; Telekommunikation;

    Abstract : The emergence of heterogeneous networks and the rapid increase of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications provide important opportunities for the telecommunications market. These opportunities come at the price of increased complexity in the monitoring of the quality of service (QoS) and the need for adaptation of transmission systems to the changing environmental conditions.

  2. 2. Probabilistic Sequence Models with Speech and Language Applications

    Author : Gustav Eje Henter; W. Bastiaan Kleijn; Arne Leijon; Gernot Kubin; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Time series; acoustic modelling; speech synthesis; stochastic processes; causal-state splitting reconstruction; robust causal states; pattern discovery; Markov models; HMMs; nonparametric models; Gaussian processes; Gaussian process dynamical models; nonlinear Kalman filters; information theory; minimum entropy rate simplification; kernel density estimation; time-series bootstrap;

    Abstract : Series data, sequences of measured values, are ubiquitous. Whenever observations are made along a path in space or time, a data sequence results. To comprehend nature and shape it to our will, or to make informed decisions based on what we know, we need methods to make sense of such data. READ MORE

  3. 3. Source and Channel Coding for Audiovisual Communication Systems

    Author : Moo Young Kim; Bastiaan Kleijn; Richard Heusdens; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Telekommunikation; Information theory; high-rate theory; source coding; channel coding; quantization; Telekommunikation; Telecommunication; Telekommunikation;

    Abstract : Topics in source and channel coding for audiovisual communication systems are studied. The goal of source coding is to represent a source with the lowest possible rate to achieve a particular distortion, or with the lowest possible distortion at a given rate. Channel coding adds redundancy to quantized source information to recover channel errors. READ MORE

  4. 4. A study on selecting and optimizing perceptually relevant features for automatic speech recognition

    Author : Christos Koniaris; W. Bastiaan Kleijn; Richard Heusdens; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The performance of an automatic speech recognition (ASR) system strongly depends on the representation used for the front-end. If the extracted features do not include all relevant information, the performance of the classification stage is inherently suboptimal. READ MORE

  5. 5. Paradigms for Real-Time Video Communication and for Video Distribution

    Author : Ermin Kozica; W. Bastiaan Kleijn; Fernando Pereira; KTH; []
    Keywords : TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : The use of new information technologies has drastically changed the way that we lead our lives. Communication technologies in particular have had a great impact on our day-to-day behavior. READ MORE
