Continuous-state dynamical system models for
The second grant for the Espresso project ran from 1st October 1999 to 30th Sept 2000 and 1st April 2001 to 31st Jan 2002.
In this, the second phase of Espresso, we investigated new acoustic models which account for the continuous, asynchronous nature of speech. We chose to look at linear, continuous-state dynamical system models, also known as Kalman filters.
