Confidence measures based on the k-nn probability estimator

Fabrice Lefèvre

In this paper, the use of the probabilities produced by a K-nearest neighbours (K-nn) estimator as confidence measure is investigated in an hypothesis verification post-processing scheme. The objective is to classify as correct or incorrect the outputs of a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) /HMM speech recognition system. Four confidence measures based on the Knn probability estimator are introduced. Preliminary experiments are reported and discussed on the TIMIT database.
