We present a search for standard model (SM) Higgs boson production using pp collision data at square root(s) = 1.96 TeV, collected with the CDF II detector and corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 4.8 fb(-1). We search for Higgs bosons produced in all processes with a significant production rate and decaying to two W bosons. We find no evidence for(More)
We present a search for the technicolor particles rho{T} and pi_{T} in the process pp-->rho{T}-->Wpi{T} at a center of mass energy of sqrt[s]=1.96 TeV. The search uses a data sample corresponding to approximately 1.9 fb{-1} of integrated luminosity accumulated by the CDF II detector at the Fermilab Tevatron. The event signature we consider is W-->lnu and(More)
This paper presents a voice conversion (VC) technique for noisy environments, where parallel exemplars are introduced to encode the source speech signal and synthesize the target speech signal. The parallel exemplars (dictionary) consist of the source exemplars and target exemplars, having the same texts uttered by the source and target speakers. The input(More)
This paper presents a voice conversion technique using Deep Belief Nets (DBNs) to build high-order eigen spaces of the source/target speakers, where it is easier to convert the source speech to the target speech than in the traditional cepstrum space. DBNs have a deep architecture that automatically discovers abstractions to maximally express the original(More)
—We investigated the speech recognition of a person with articulation disorders resulting from athetoid cerebral palsy. Recently, the accuracy of speaker-independent speech recognition has been remarkably improved by the use of stochastic modeling of speech. However, the use of those acoustic models causes degradation of speech recognition for a person with(More)
—We present consonant enhancement on a voice for a person with articulation disorders resulting from athetoid cerebral palsy. The movement of such speakers is limited by their athetoid symptoms, and their consonants are often unstable or unclear, which makes it difficult for them to communicate. Speech recognition for articulation disorders has been(More)
This paper presents a sound source (talker) localization method using only a single microphone, where a HMM (Hidden Markov Model) of clean speech is introduced to estimate the acoustic transfer function from a user's position. The new method is able to carry out this estimation without measuring impulse responses. The frame sequence of the acoustic transfer(More)
We present in this paper a voice conversion (VC) method for a person with an articulation disorder resulting from athetoid cerebral palsy. The movement of such speakers is limited by their athetoid symptoms, and their consonants are often unstable or unclear, which makes it difficult for them to communicate. In this paper, exemplar-based spectral conversion(More)
