A sequential decision problem, based on the task of identifying the species of trees given acoustic echo data collected from them, is considered with well-known stochastic classifiers, including single and mixture Gaussian models. Echoes are processed with a preprocessing stage based on a model of mammalian cochlear filtering, using a new discrete low-pass filter characteristic. Stopping time performance of the sequential decision process is evaluated and compared. It is observed that the new… CONTINUE READING
