Emotion recognition from speech has noticeable applications in the speech-processing systems. In this paper, the effect of using a rich set of features including formant frequency related, pitch frequency related, energy, and the two first mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) on improving the performance of speech emotion recognition systems is(More)
The main contribution of this paper is to propose a nonlinear robust controller to synchronize general chaotic systems, such that the controller does not need the information of the chaotic system’s model. Following this purpose, in this paper, two methods are proposed to synchronize general forms of chaotic systems with application in secure communication.(More)
Low delay-code excited linear prediction (LD-CELP) is an attractive algorithm in implementing vocoders in voice over Internet protocol networks. This algorithm has been proposed for the coding of speech at 16 kbps with toll quality. However, operation at transmission rates lower than 16 kbps is desirable, so that traffic can be accommodated during system(More)
This paper studies the Lorenz hyperchaos synchronization and its application to improve the security of communication systems. Two methods are proposed to synchronize the general forms of hyperchaotic systems, and their performance in secure communication application is verified. These methods use the radial basis function (RBF)-based neural controllers for(More)
