Experimental results

A series of experiments was conducted to verify that the switching NSSM model and the learning algorithm derived in Chapters 5 and 6 really work. The results of these experiments are presented in this chapter.

All the experiments were done with different parts of one large data set of speech. In Section 7.1, the data set used and some of its properties are introduced. In Section 7.2, the developed switching NSSM is compared with standard HMM, NSSM and NFA models. The results of a segmentation experiment are presented in Section 7.3.
