Particle Swarm Optimization to Improve Robustness of Distributed Speech Recognition
This paper investigates a Particle Swarm Optimization (PSO) approach that aims at improving the performance of Distributed Speech Recognition (DSR) systems in noisy mobile environments. PSO is used to optimize the combination of Mel-Frequency based input features by estimating the best weighting of the feature stream exponents of Hidden Markov Models with Gaussian mixture emissions (GMM/HMMs). The experiments have been carried out using a subset of artificially distorted TIMIT database and have shown an important improvement that reaches a relative average of 30.97% in terms of word recognition accuracy compared to conventional DSR systems.
