Connectionist Speech Recognition

RRP $68.00

Connectionist Speech Recognition: A Hybrid Approach describes the theory and implementation of a method to incorporate neural network approaches into state of the art continuous speech recognition systems based on hidden Markov models (HMMs) to improve their performance. In this framework, neural networks (and in particular, multilayer perceptrons or MLPs) have been restricted to well-defined subtasks of the whole system, i.e. HMM emission probability estimation and feature extraction.
The book describes a successful five-year international collaboration between the authors. The lessons learned form a case study that demonstrates how hybrid systems can be developed to combine neural networks with more traditional statistical approaches. The book illustrates both the advantages and limitations of neural networks in the framework of a statistical systems.
Using standard databases and comparison with some conventional approaches, it is shown that MLP probability estimation can improve recognition performance. Other approaches are discussed, though there is no such unequivocal experimental result for these methods.
Connectionist Speech Recognition is of use to anyone intending to use neural networks for speech recognition or within the framework provided by an existing successful statistical approach. This includes research and development groups working in the field of speech recognition, both with standard and neural network approaches, as well as other pattern recognition and/or neural network researchers. The book is also suitable as a text for advanced courses on neural networks or speech processing.

Speech Is A Skill

RRP $434.99

"SPEECH IS A SKILL. 100% Reliable Scientific Solution For the Perfection of Speech and Elimination Of Stuttering Based on Natural Laws Discovered and Explained by Academic R.A. Snezhko" is the second edition of "STUTTERING SOLVED! Definitive Scientific Solution for Speech Perfection Based on Natural Laws Discovered and Explained By Roman Snezhko" - the introduction of a breakthrough in science and education. This edition is written by Anna Deeter under the scientific supervision of Academic R.A. Snezhko - the author of the Etalon method for the elimination of stuttering. First time in recorded history, there is finally a clear, precise, and truly scientific answer to every question ever asked by millions of people who stutter, their families, and speech professionals about speech and stuttering! Readers will discover: What is speech? What is stuttering? What causes stuttering? How and why do people develop stuttering? Why did the concept of stuttering as a neurological and genetic disorder confuse so many bright scientists? Why is it that the modern conventional approach towards stuttering (acceptance, therapy, cure or management) has not been successful and must be changed? What is the only real solution in putting an end to stuttering efficiently, effectively and permanently? What is the ETALON Speech Education Program for the Elimination of Stuttering about and why it guarantees 100% success? Anna Deeter shares her unique knowledge she gained over the three years of her intensive study and practical work under the guidance of her Mentor - a Russian scientist, researcher and the Program author Academic (Professor) Roman Alekseyevich Snezhko, who has become the first man to solve the mystery of stuttering by explaining speech as a learned skill and discovering a definitive education solution for its perfection by any human being. Since 1998, nearly 3000 stutterers speaking various languages have graduated from the "ETALON" Program with 100% successful outcome and have been enjoying their stutter-free speech ever since.
