In this paper, a novel confidence-based reinforcement learning (RL) scheme to correct observation log-likelihoods and to address the problem of unsupervised compensation with limited estimation data is proposed. A two-step Viterbi decoding is presented which estimates a correction factor for the observation log-likelihoods that makes the recognized and(More)
This paper proposes a novel feature-space VTLN (vocal tract length normalization) method that models frequency warping as a linear interpolation of contiguous Mel filter-bank energies. The presented technique aims to reduce the distortion in the Mel filter-bank energy estimation due to the harmonic composition of voiced speech intervals and DFT (discrete(More)
