|Official Description||Development of an intuitive understanding of speech processing by the auditory system, in three parts. I): The theory of acoustics of speech production, introductory acoustic phonetics, inhomogeneous transmission line theory (and reflectance), room acoustics, the short-time Fourier Transform (and its inverse), and signal processing of speech (LPC, CELP, VQ). II): Psychoacoustics of speech perception, critical bands, masking (JNDs), and the physiology of the auditory pathway (cochlear modeling). III): Information theory entropy, channel capacity, the confusion matrix, state models, EM algorithms, and Bayesian networks. Presentation of classic papers on speech processing and speech perception by student groups. MATLAB (or equivalent) programming in majority of assignments. Course Information: Prerequisite: ECE 310.|
|Subject Area||Biomedical Imaging, Bioengineering, and Acoustics|
|Course Prerequisites||Credit in ECE 410|
|Detailed Description and Outline
If you are a serious student and really want to learn how speech is generated, processed and understood by the brain, please join us at:
Aspects of information theory, speech and signal processing are on the table.
This is for the serious student. You will get a great job if you take this course.
Matlab will be used in homeworks
A final report will replace a final exam.
