A novel adaptive smoothing approach is proposed for noise removal and feature preservation where two distinct measures are simultaneously adopted to detect discontinuities in an image. Inhomogeneity underlying an image is employed as a multiscale measure to detect contextual discontinuities for feature preservation and control of the smoothing speed, while(More)
A modified hierarchical mixtures of experts (HME) architecture is presented for text-dependent speaker identification. A new gating network is introduced to the original HME architecture for the use of instantaneous and transitional spectral information in text-dependent speaker identification. The statistical model underlying the proposed architecture is(More)
In practical applications of pattern recognition, there are often different features extracted from raw data which needs recognizing. Methods of combining multiple classifiers with different features are viewed as a general problem in various application areas of pattern recognition. In this paper, a systematic investigation has been made and possible(More)
In this paper, we extend the Hierarchical Mixture of Experts (HME) to temporal processing and explore it for a substantial problem, that of text-dependent speaker identification. For a specific multiway classification, we propose a generalized Bernoulli density instead of the multinomial logit density to avoid the instability during training. Time-delay(More)
In this paper, we explore the Input/Output HMM (IOHMM) architecture for a substantial problem, that of text-dependent speaker identification. For subnetworks modeled with generalized linear models, we extend the IRLS algorithm to the M-step of the corresponding EM algorithm. Experimental results show that the improved EM algorithm yields significantly(More)
Semi-supervised inductive learning concerns how to learn a decision rule from a data set containing both labeled and unlabeled data. Several boosting algorithms have been extended to semi-supervised learning with various strategies. To our knowledge, however, none of them takes local smoothness constraints among data into account during ensemble learning.(More)
We propose a dynamically coupled neural oscillator network for image segmentation. Instead of pair-wise coupling, an ensemble of oscillators coupled in a local region is used for grouping. We introduce a set of neighborhoods to generate dynamical coupling structures associated with a specific oscillator. Based on the proximity and similarity principles, two(More)
