  3. 3. Information state based speech recognition

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Rebecca Jonson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; dialogue systems; speech recognition; language modelling; dialogue move; dialogue context; ASR; higher level knowledge; linguistic knowledge; N-Best re-ranking; confidence scoring; confidence annotation; information state; ISU approach;

    Abstract : One of the pitfalls in spoken dialogue systems is the brittleness of automatic speech recognition (ASR). ASR systems often misrecognize user input and they are unreliable when it comes to judging their own performance. READ MORE

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Alexander Seward; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : speech recognition; algorithms; hidden markov models; HMM; weigted finite-state transducers;

    Abstract : This thesis presents work in the area of automatic speech recognition (ASR). The thesis focuses on methods for increasing the efficiency of speech recognition systems and on techniques for efficient representation of different types of knowledge in the decoding process. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lip-motion biometrics for audio-visual identity recognition

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Chalmers university of technology

    Author : Maycel Isaac Faraj; Högskolan i Halmstad.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Image analysis; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Bildanalys; Biometrics; Lip motion; Audio-visual signals; Speech recognition; Speaker recognition; Digit recognition;

    Abstract : Biometric recognition systems have been established as powerful security tools to prevent unknown users from entering high risk systems and areas. They are increasingly being utilized in surveillance and access management (city centers, banks, etc.) by using individuals' physical or biological characteristics. READ MORE
