Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
Brian Kingsbury, IBM Abstract: A key to achieving good automatic speech recognition performance has been the availability of vast amounts of labeled and unlabeled speech and text data that can be used to train speech models; however, there are thousands of languages in the world that we would like...

Speech Representation, Perception and Recognition
Bob McMurray, U. Iowa Abstract: One of the most challenging aspects of speech perception is the rampant variability in the signal. One consequence of this variability is that purely bottom up approaches to categorizing phonemes have not consistently been successful. Top down accounts--analogous to...
