1-D Local binary patterns based VAD used INHMM-based improved speech recognition
TLDR
In this paper, 1-D Local binary patterns (LBP) are proposed to be used in speech signal segmentation and voice activation detection (VAD)and combined with hidden Markov model (HMM) for advanced speech recognition. Expand

Automatic early warning of tail biting in pigs: 3D cameras can detect lowered tail posture before an outbreak
Tail biting is a major welfare and economic problem for indoor pig producers worldwide. Low tail posture is an early warning sign which could reduce tail biting unpredictability. Taking a precisionExpand
