I have a basic understanding of HMM's and as a final year project at school wanted to expand my knowledge further.
My basic idea was to create an algorithm that determines if someone is saying either Yes or No. As interesting as this sounds, it's relatively easy and I want something that challenges me even more and wanted to know if my idea was possible.
The algorithm will be able to answer certain questions (given samples).. E.g.
Q: Is this person saying either Yes no No?
Q: Is this person male or female?
Q: Is this animal a bat?
Obviously, my data-set will be massive, but is this possible using HMM's? So, in theory, instead of handling whether someone is saying yes or no, the algorithm becomes universal and I can determine many many things.
I hope someone can help me.
