The goal Objective of the course is for the students to become capable of applying basic techniques for digital processing and speech recognition.
The outcome Learning outcomes should be for the students to gain the following skills: endpoints detection in the recorded speech sequence, estimation of pitch frequency, design of different speech quantizers,design of speech recognition systems based on spectral, cepstral coefficients or hidden Markov chains.
Contents of lectures Modelling of acoustic waveform, Model of uniform tube, Time-domain speech signal processing, Different techniques of quantizers, Evaluation of quantizers, Homomorphic processing of speech signal, LPC analysis of speech signals, Hidden Markov chains and application in speech recognition.
Contents of exercises Within the course, students have obligation to solve three practical problems: 1. estimation of their pitch frequency and segmentation of their speech, 2. modelling and evaluation of particular quantizer, 3. design of a hidden Markov chain.
