Does the input data have to be passed through the Baum-Welsh function to compute the Viterbi decoder?

I'm using a Hidden Markov Model in order to train an application for gesture recognition. Currently, I have gathered samples, and, using a library have trained these values (They have been passed ...

Effect of redundant training data in HMM-based speech recognizer/synthesizer?

How are redundant training data handled during the training stage? For example, assume we have one observation for phone $\theta$ in the training set. Then the training (for a monophone) is done ...

Why are the observation features of an HMM-based recognition/synthesis system modeled by a Gaussian distribution?

Why are the observation features (namely MFCCs) of an HMM-based recognition/synthesis system modeled by a Gaussian distribution? Even the state duration is modeled by a Gaussian in this paper: K. ...

Are delta and double delta features needed when classifying with LSTM

I understand that the combination of MFCCs, deltas and double deltas is a good feature to be used with HMMs for keyword detection problems. HMMs are limited by Markov Property and this limitation is ...

What does the output of Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) represents in a HMM-GMM based speech recognition application?

Till now I know that- first the speech is converted frames and feature vectors are calculated for each frame using MFCC. And while training the Acoustic model- HMM model is generate for each phoneme ...

HMM-based speech recognition/synthesis: state representation of monophones and triphones

In literature, a monophone is represented with 3 states. When doing context dependent clustering, 3 states are used to represent a triphone. Why is the triphone represented with 3 states and not 5? ...

Correct implementation of GMM-HMM for Speech Recognition

For N words, we have N HMMs. In each of the HMMs, the states are the GMMs. Each GMM models unique phoneme (with or without belonging to a particular context). It is these HMMs (words) that constitute ...

Why HMM transition probabilities plays no significant role in speech modeling

I'm reading a thesis, it mainly uses a GMM-HMM to tackle the acoustic unit discovery task. It proposes a delicate Bayesian framework on top of the GMM-HMM. In page 15 it says Notice that we have not ...
