    In this article, we studied the objective functions of MMI, MCE, and MPE/MWE for discriminative learning in sequential pattern recognition. We presented an approach that unifies the objective functions of MMI, MCE, and MPE/MWE in a common rational-function form of (25). The exact structure of the rational-function form for each discriminative criterion was derived and studied. While the rational-f... View full abstract»

    Technological supports for people with disabilities are usually referred to as assistive technology. There has been significant work in developing technologies to support people with mobility and sensory disabilities. Developing these tools for people with cognitive disabilities has not been as widespread. In this article, we briefly outline causes and consequences of cognitive disabilities and th...

    Network coding is a powerful technique introduced at the turn of the millennium, when a simple but far-reaching observation was made that, in communication networks, one can allow intermediate nodes to not only forward but also combine and process the incoming information flows [1]. Today, the field is attracting significant interest from engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians in both ... View full abstract»

    In this article, it describe two ways to implement a variable-Q digital filter. First, present a simple variable-Q filter and then illustrate why its frequency response is less than ideal. Next, show a trick to modify that filter, making its performance nearly ideal. As always, the choice of which filter to use is made based on the user's application. View full abstract»
