Vocal Tract Length Perturbation (VTLP) improves speech recognition

Improvements in speech recognition are suggested without increasing the number of training epochs, and it is suggested that data transformations should be an important component of training neural networks for speech, especially for data limited projects.
2010 MIT Colloquium on Brain and Cognition: The Hans-Lukas Teuber Lecture
TLDR
This paper shows how each of the problems with the standard way of learning an artificial neural network by backpropagating error derivatives can be fixed and describes a few applications which demonstrate the true power of back Propagation.
