Feature selection is exposed to the curse of dimensionality risk, and it is even more exacerbated with high-dimensional data such as microarrays. Moreover, the low-instance/high-feature (LIHF) property of microarray data needs considerable processing time to do some calculations and comparisons among features to choose the best subset of them, whic...

Two-microphone binary mask speech enhancement (2mBMSE) has been of particular interest in recent literature and has shown promising results. Current 2mBMSE systems rely on spatial cues of speech and noise sources. Although these cues are helpful for directional noise sources, they lose their efficiency in diffuse noise fields. We propose a new syst...

Ideal binary mask speech enhancement is shown to increase the speech quality as well as speech intelligibility. But, this property depends highly on the accurate separation of speech and masker time-frequency units of the input spectrum, which is a difficult task in real situations. Ordinary binary mask methods are single-microphone methods and so,...

Nowadays UML has been accepted in both academia and industry as a de facto modelling language to develop software systems. As relational databases are widely used for developing software systems, thus, it is a challenge to derive relational tables from designed models. In this paper, we present a formal yet automatic approach to extract relational...
Article
In this contribution, a novel dual-channel speech enhancement technique is introduced. The proposed approach uses the dissimilarity between the power of received signals in the two channels as a criterion for speech enhancement and noise reduction. We claim that in near field conditions, where the distances between microphones and sound source are...

Decision trees are one of the most effective and widely used induction methods that have received a great deal of attention over the past twenty years. When decision tree induction algorithms were used with uncertain rather than deterministic data, the result is a complete tree, which can classify most of the unseen samples correctly. This tree wou...

Some two-microphone noise reduction techniques that work in the frequency domain exploit coherence function between two noisy signals. They have shown good results when noise signals on two sensors are uncorrelated, but their performance decreases with correlated noises. Coherence based methods can be improved when the cross power spectral density...
Article
Among various speech enhancement methods, two-microphone noise reduction systems are utilized for their low cost implementation and acceptable performance. Coherence-based methods are well known as efficient two-microphone noise reduction techniques. These techniques, however, do not work well when the received noise signals are correlated. Coheren...

In this paper, a new objective measure is proposed to assess the amount of the wide-band musical noise in an acoustic signal. The measure uses time and frequency characteristics of the musical noise to determine the musicalness of the residual noise. The proposed measure uses noise masking thresholds to measure how much audible the musical noise co...

Linear discriminant analysis (LDA) is a feature selection method in speech recognition. LDA finds transformations that maximizes the between-class scatter and minimizes within-class scatter. This transformation can be obtained in a class-dependent or class independent manner. In this paper, we propose a method to use class-dependent LDA for speech...

In this paper we present a novel technique which localizes sound source with acceptable accuracy and low time complexity. In this technique, contrary to former localization techniques in 3-D space, only three microphones are sufficient. Instead of searching the entire space domain for the sound source, we first estimate an approximate point of the...
