Integral and Diagnostic Intrusive Prediction of Speech by Nicolas Côté

By Nicolas Côté

This paintings bargains with the instrumental dimension equipment for the perceived caliber of transmitted speech. those measures simulate the speech conception strategy hired via human topics in the course of auditory experiments. The degree standardized via the foreign Telecommunication Union (ITU), referred to as “Wideband-Perceptual Speech caliber evaluate (WB-PESQ)”, isn't really in a position to quantify these types of perceived features on a unidimensional caliber scale, the suggest Opinion rating (MOS) scale. contemporary experimental reports confirmed that matters utilize numerous perceptual dimensions to pass judgement on in regards to the caliber of speech indications. for you to signify the sign at a better level of conception, a brand new version, referred to as “Diagnostic Instrumental overview of Listening caliber (DIAL)”, has been constructed. It encompasses a perceptual and a cognitive version which simulate the full caliber judgment approach. aside from powerful discontinuities, DIAL predicts rather well speech caliber of other speech processing and transmission platforms, and it outperforms the WB-PESQ.

Verteilte Führungsinformationssysteme

Rückblick und Sachstand der technologischen Aspekte bei der Entwicklung verteilter Führungsinformationssysteme, einer zentralen Aufgabe in der Bundeswehr sowie bei Behörden und Organisationen mit Sicherheitsaufgeben (z. B. Polizei, Rettungskräfte). Vornehmlich Wissenschaftler der Abteilung Informationstechnik für Führungssysteme des Forschungsinstituts für Kommunikation, Informationsverarbeitung und Ergonomie beschreiben basierend auf einer 40-jährigen Erfahrung in diesem Anwendungsgebiet Konzepte und Einzelaspekte bei der Gestaltung von Führungsinformationssystemen.

Digital Libraries: People, Knowledge, and Technology: 5th International Conference on Asian Digital Libraries, ICADL 2002, Singapore, December 11-14, 2002. Proceedings

The overseas convention on Asian electronic Libraries (ICADL) is an annual foreign discussion board for members to switch learn effects, leading edge rules, and cutting-edge advancements in electronic libraries. equipped upon the successes of the 1st 4 ICADL meetings, the fifth ICADL convention in Singapore was once geared toward additional strengthening the location of ICADL as a premiere electronic library convention that attracts prime quality papers and shows from all over the global, whereas assembly the desires and pursuits of electronic library groups within the Asia-Pacific zone.

Subject-Oriented Business Process Management

Actions played in agencies are coordinated through communique among the folks concerned. The sentences used to speak are evidently dependent through topic, verb, and item. the topic describes the actor, the verb the motion and the item what's plagued by the motion. Subject-oriented company method administration (S-BPM) as offered during this booklet relies in this easy constitution which permits process-oriented pondering and method modeling.

RoboCup 2015: Robot World Cup XIX

This ebook is the complaints of the nineteenth Annual RoboCup overseas Symposium, held in Hefei, China, in July 2015. The booklet includes 20 papers provided on the Symposium, rigorously chosen from 39 submissions. also the booklet includes eleven champion crew papers and one paper from the Workshop on Benchmarking carrier Robots.

Waveform method: it is based on Pulse Code modulation (PCM) techniques. g. Log. PCM (ITU–T Rec. g. AD-PCM (ITU–T Rec. 726, 1990). 2. Vocoder method: this method makes use of the quasiperiodic properties of the speech signal, x(k). The short-term speech spectrum is estimated in x(k) and then synthesized in y(k) by using bandpass filters. e. d(k) = x(k) − x(k)) are then transmitted. This method was introduced by Dudley (1939) who used analog bandpass filters. Modern vocoders usually employ a vocal tract model.

For instance, the bandwidth of the transmitted speech over PSTN corresponds to the transmission of the frequencies between 300 and 3 400Hz. This bandwidth is, nowadays, referred to as Narrow-Band (NB). The PSTN is based on a “circuit-switched” network: the two interlocutors are connected by a physical circuit, preserved over the whole conversation call. In such a network, all physical parameters are well controlled to ensure a stable speech quality. During the last two decades, the deregulation of the telecommunications market broadly changed the telephone networks.
