An Investigation into a Simulation of Episodic Memory for Automatic Speech Recognition

Viktoria Maier, Roger K. Moore

University of Sheffield, UK

This paper investigates a simulation of episodic memory known in the literature as ‘minerva 2'. Minerva 2 is a computational multiple-trace memory model that successfully predicts basic findings from the schema-abstraction literature. This model has been implemented and tested on a simple ASR task using vowel formant data taken from the Peterson & Barney database. Recogni- tion results are compared to a number of state-of-the-art pattern classifiers, and it is shown that the episodic model achieves the best performance.
