A self-structuring neural noise reduction model

Helge B. D. Sorensen, Uwe Hartmann

This paper describes how speech recognition in the presence of F-16 jet cockpit noise can be performed using a sequence of three units - an auditory model and two neural models. A method for noise reduction in the cepstral domian based on a self-structuring universal approximates is proposed and tested on a large database of isolated words contaminated with jet noise. This approach is a potential alternative to traditional recognition methods for noisy speech and makes noise reduction possible in all three models as in the system in [1]. The first model performs a spectral analysis of the input speech signal. The second model is a Self-structuring Neural Noise Reduction (SNNR) model, which is an alternative to the noise reduction model [1] presented at ICASSP91. The noise reduced output from the SNNR network is propagated through the speech recognizer consisting of a set of Hidden Control Neural Networks (HCNN).
