    A perspective is developed of the requirements for and the design of high-performance speech processing systems. These are viewed as complex systems composed of two hierarchies including a structural hierarchy of various sized units and an additional hierarchy of qualitatively distinct constraint domains. The nature of these constraints and their interaction is characterized, as well as the criter... View full abstract»

    Quantization, the process of approximating continuous-amplitude signals by digital (discrete-amplitude) signals, is an important aspect of data compression or coding, the field concerned with the reduction of the number of bits necessary to transmit or store analog data, subject to a distortion or fidelity criterion. The independent quantization of each signal value or parameter is termed scalar q... View full abstract»

    Progress in speech synthesis has been hampered by the lack of rule-writing tools of sufficient flexibility and power. This paper presents a new system, Delta, that gives linguists and programmers a versatile rule language and friendly debugging environment. Delta's central data structure is well-suited for representing a broad class of multi-level utterance structures. The Delta language has flexi... View full abstract»

    In automatic speech recognition, the acoustic signal is the only tangible connection between the talker and the machine. While the signal conveys linguistic information, this information is often encoded in such a complex manner that the signal exhibits a great deal of variability. In addition, variations in environment and speaker can introduce further distortions that are linguistically irreleva... View full abstract»

    The past decade has witnessed substantial progress toward the goal of constructing a machine capable of understanding colloquial discourse. Central to this progress has been the development and application of mathematical methods that permit modeling the speech signal as a complex code with several coexisting levels of structure. The most successful of these are "template matching," stochastic mod... View full abstract»

    The usefulness of identifying a person from the characteristics of his voice is increasing with the growing importance of automatic information processing and telecommunications. This paper reviews the voice characteristics and identification techniques used in recognizing people by their voices. A discussion of inherent performance limitations, along with a review of the performance achieved by l... View full abstract»

    As the use of voice response systems employing synthetic speech becomes more widespread in consumer products, industrial and military applications, and aids for the handicapped, it will be necessary to develop reliable methods of comparing different synthesis systems and of assessing how human observers perceive and respond to the speech generated by these systems. The selection of a specific voic... View full abstract»

    This letter deals with a novel and versatile bridge setup for the direct measurement of in-circuit resistance. Unlike other directreading bridges, it is a balanced, active bridge. It basically employs an active RC integrator, a fixed standard resistance, and a reference voltage source. The steady-state output voltage of the integrator is found to be directly proportional to the unknown resistance.... View full abstract»

  • High-field microwave incremental conductivity of cadmium selenide at 77 K

    Publication Year: 1985 , Page(s): 1682 - 1683

    The microwave conductivity of cadmium selenide has been calculated at 77 K assuming a displaced Maxwellian energy distribution function for the electrons. It is found that the microwave conductivity decreases monotonically with the applied electric field and has a lower value for higher impurity concentration. The frequency dependence of the microwave conductivity shows that it is substantially co... View full abstract»

    We propose a triple error-correcting product code, designed to provide additional error protection for data consisting of 8-bit bytes all having even (or odd) parity (e.g., ASCII characters). A practical decoding algorithm for the code is described. View full abstract»

  • On the stability of two-dimensional continuous filters

    The Hermite stability criterion for one-dimensional filters is applied to prove the stability theorems for two-dimensional continuous filters. It is shown that the problem in the stability theorems for the two-dimensional continuous filters when the leading coefficient becomes zero is inherent in the Hermite stability criterion for the one-dimensional filters. It is in sharp contrast to the Schur-... View full abstract»

    A digital conferencing technique based on pseudo-addition of adaptive delta-modulated channels has been presented. It employs majority logic for routing speech signals of active subscriber to all others in conference. Time sharing allows processing of large number of channels, making it attractive for VLSI realization. View full abstract»

    A digital method of generating very-wide-band FM (VWBFM) signal, based on a novel "time-domain FM" (TDFM) concept, has been described. Uniform samples of the sinusoidal carrier, stored in a read-only memory (ROM), are retrieved in synchronization with the zero-crossings of an FM square wave and interpolated using a tracking low-pass filter (TLPF).

    In this letter, a simple method for modulation and demodulation of minimum shift keying (MSK) is proposed. It has a serial structure, and is easier to implement than the conventional parallel type. The MSK signal is generated by a digital synthesis method and the demodulation process is done by a simple sampling scheme. View full abstract»
