This paper investigates two methods to define a distance measure between any pair of Hidden Markov Models (HMM). The first one is the geometricaly motivated euclidean distance which solely incorporates the feature probabilities. The second measure is the Kulback-Liebler distance which is based on the discriminating power of the probability measure on the(More)

In this paper we present a robust speaker independent speech recognition system consisting of a feature extraction based on a model of the auditory periphery, and a Locally Recurrent Neural Network for scoring of the derived feature vectors. A number of recognition experiments were carried out to investigate the robustness of this combination against di(More)

OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to determine the fracture strength of zirconium implant abutments and the torque required to unfasten the retaining screw before and after applying cyclic loading to the implant-abutment assembly. The dynamic behavior and stress distribution pattern of zirconium abutments were also evaluated. METHODS AND MATERIALS(More)

Speech recognition systems (SRS) designed for applications in low cost products like telephones or in systems with energetic constraints like autonomous vehicles are faced with the demand for solutions with low complexity. A small vocabulary consisting of a few command words as well as the digits is suucient for most of the applications but has to be(More)
