Statistical Methods for Speech Recognition (Language, Speech, and Communication)By: Frederick Jelinek Publication Date: 19980116 Number of pages: 305 ISBN10: 0262100665 ISBN13: 9780262100663 This book reflects decades of important research on the mathematical foundations of speech recognition. It focuses on underlying statistical techniques such as hidden Markov models, decision trees, the expectationmaximization algorithm, information theoretic goodness criteria, maximum entropy probability estimation, parameter and data clustering, and smoothing of probability distributions. The author's goal is to present these principles clearly in the simplest setting, to show the advantages of selforganization from real data, and to enable the reader to apply the techniques.
