Neural Networks for Speech Recognition

Full-size image (338 K)

Our 'Sinhala Speech Recognition system' is now showing an elementary behavior, but we need to improve it more in order to get a satisfactory performance. To achieve that we are using optimization techniques on several faces such as improving and training language model and acoustic model, noise filtering techniques and machine learning approaches.

I’m going to use a neural network based approach to overcome the uncertainty due to variations of user and environment noise.  My intention is to use this blog entry to provide a step by step process to illustrate how to use a neural network in speech recognition.


Introduction to neural networks

A neural network is a collection of unique processing elements named neurons which are connected with similar other elements. First artificial neural network was designed in late 50’s and it’s much simpler than any biological neural network. Biological neural networks are far more complex and lots of studies are happening to discover the secrets behind these biological systems. Neural networks perform their role in applications that have limitations of using regular computer programs such as image recognition, speech recognition and making decisions.

Neural network differ from regular programming due to its requirement of training before performing task where as in regular programming task is programmed.

1. This loan will provide the necessary capital to purchase software, marketing materials and entrepreneurial educational tool taught by master entrepreneur and CEO of Nouveau Riche University, Jim Piccolo. With the ability to now focus full-time as opposed to free-time I expect to increase my income to a respectable $1,800/month.
2. Seriously folks, this loan will be used to take my Forex Trading Strategy, which is working very well, to the next level. Look at the picture in the listing. Over 150% profit in 13 days of active, 24 hour, automated trading using my software. (Turns out never traded for real money)
3. This loan will be used to help me invest 10k into a forex managed account investment fund. I am a good candidate for this loan because I am investing my own money...

No Loss Trading Plan that really works for your.

Are you in the Dallas, TX area? I have a trading plan that is non speculative, non directional, and generates a very high rate of return. It works everyday - all the time - with no losses - (yes) it "really" works. I have been trading the financial markets for 30 years and I understand exactly what I am doing. As a demo, I started trading a friends Forex account of just $6,000.00 on 12/20/07 and I generated a 100% return in just three weeks using leverage with no losses. Luck was not part of the success. A properly funded brokerage account will never have losses. I know it sounds unlikely but I can demonstrate and prove it "is" true. It took me most of my life to develop this technique and it did not come cheap to me. I call it my zero sum no loss trading plan and it will beat any...

$2000 for an online course huh. If it works for you. A few weeks is really good to actually begin to profit in live trading. Staying consistant over the long hual is the trick now. That takes discipline. Avoid the blowout sessions where a trader chases good money after bad trying to recoup losses. Or greedily jumps into a trade with little research.
I home schooled myself over about a year period. I didn't have the money to trade at the time so it really didn't matter. I was content to learn and save till I had it. I had some expenses that was a priority over forex. When I did have the extra cash not swallowed by life I had been profiting for over 6 months on paper and the transition to live was relatively seemless.
I'm getting nice returns now for almost a year live. From...
