Deep convolutional neural networks for acoustic modeling in low resource languages

Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) have demonstrated powerful acoustic modelling capabilities due to their ability to account for structural locality in the feature space; and in recent works CNNs have been shown to often outperform fully connected Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) on TIMIT and LVCSR. In this paper, we perform a detailed empirical study of CNNs… (More)
