An improved GMM-based voice quality predictor

Tiago H. Falk, Wai-Yip Chan, Peter Kabal

A voice quality prediction method based on Gaussian mixture models (GMMs) is improved by constructing a feature selection algorithm to provide the best GMM-based prediction quality. The proposed sequential selection algorithm performs N-survivor search, allowing for trading between design complexity and performance. Simulation shows that predictors designed using the proposed algorithm outperform two benchmark selection algorithms. Performance improvements over the ITU-T P.862 PESQ standard are also attained.
