Numerous attempts have been made to find low-dimensional, formant-related representations of speech signals that are suitable for automatic speech recognition. However, it is often not known how these features behave in comparison with true formants. The purpose of this study was to compare two sets of automatically extracted formant-like features, i.e.,(More)
The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare the dentine shear bond strength of five self-etching bonding agents with that of a total-etch dentine bonding agent (used as control). Sixty recently extracted third molar teeth were mounted in acrylic resin and the occlusal surfaces ground to expose superficial dentine. A standardised smear layer was(More)
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Clinical stresses and situations in the mouths of patients are substantially different; thus, it is not possible to make an exact in vivo comparison of the efficiency of various mouth guards. PURPOSE This study developed a device and a method to test and quantify the potential of mouth guards to absorb shock and evaluated and compared(More)
The purpose of this in vitro study was to compare dentine and enamel micro-leakage values of six self-etching bonding agents to that of a total etch dentine bonding agent (used as a control). Products evaluated were Scotchbond Multipurpose Plus (3M/ESPE), Xeno III (Dentsply), Clearfil SE Bond (Kuraray), ABF (Kuraray), Optibond Solo Self-Etch (Kerr),(More)
The purpose of this in vitro investigation was to evaluate the shear bond strength of composite resin bonded to Cerec Vitablocs Mark II porcelain with four different porcelain repair systems. The systems evaluated in this study were Scotchbond/ RelyX Primer (S/ 3M), Ultradent Porcelain Repair Kit (U, Ultradent), Vivadent Ceramic Repair Kit (V, Vivadent) and(More)
Recently, multilingual deep neural networks (DNNs) have been successfully used to improve under-resourced speech recognizers. Common approaches use either a merged universal phoneme set based on the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) or a language specific phoneme set to train a multilingual DNN. In this paper, we investigate the effect of both(More)
