Conference Paper
Full-text available
Information bottleneck (IB) is a method for extracting information from one random variable X that is relevant for predicting another random variable Y. To do so, IB identifies an intermediate "bottleneck" variable T that has low mutual information I(X;T) and high mutual information I(Y;T). The IB curve characterizes the set of bottleneck variables...

Information bottleneck (IB) is a method for extracting information from one random variable $X$ that is relevant for predicting another random variable $Y$. To do so, IB identifies an intermediate "bottleneck" variable $T$ that has low mutual information $I(X;T)$ and high mutual information $I(Y;T)$. The "IB curve" characterizes the set of bottlene...

Instrumental intelligibility metrics are commonly used as an alternative to listening tests. This paper evaluates 12 monaural intrusive intelligibility metrics: SII, HEGP, CSII, HASPI, NCM, QSTI, STOI, ESTOI, MIKNN, SIMI, SIIB, and $\text{sEPSM}^\text{corr}$. In addition, this paper investigates the ability of intelligibility metrics to generalize...
Article
Full-text available
We propose a monaural intrusive instrumental intelligibility metric called speech intelligibility in bits (SIIB). SIIB is an estimate of the amount of information shared between a talker and a listener in bits per second. Unlike existing information theoretic intelligibility metrics, SIIB accounts for talker variability and statistical dependencies...
Conference Paper
The key to the success of speech-based technology is an understanding of human speech communication. While significant advances have been made, a unified theory of speech communication that is both comprehensive and quantitative is yet to emerge. In this paper we approach speech communication from an information theoretical perspective. Without rel...
Conference Paper
Instrumental measures of speech intelligibility typically produce an index between 0 and 1 that is monotonically related to listening test scores. As such, these measures are dimensionless and do not represent physical quantities. In this paper, we propose a new instrumental intelligibility metric that describes speech intelligibility using bits pe...
