Articulation-Disordered Speech Recognition Using Speaker-Adaptive Acoustic Models and Personalized Articulation Patterns
Chung-Hsien Wu, Hung-Yu Su, Han-Ping Shen
Article No.: 7
DOI: 10.1145/1967293.1967294

This article presents a novel approach to speaker-adaptive recognition of speech from articulation-disordered speakers without a large amount of adaptation data. An unsupervised, incremental adaptation method is adopted for personalized model...

A Fast Corpus-Based Stemmer
Jiaul H. Paik, Swapan K. Parui
Article No.: 8
DOI: 10.1145/1967293.1967295

Stemming is a mechanism of word form normalization that transforms the variant word forms to their common root. In an Information Retrieval system, it is used to increase the system’s performance, specifically the recall and desirably the...

Weighted Vote-Based Classifier Ensemble for Named Entity Recognition: A Genetic Algorithm-Based Approach
Asif Ekbal, Sriparna Saha
Article No.: 9
DOI: 10.1145/1967293.1967296

In this article, we report the search capability of Genetic Algorithm (GA) to construct a weighted vote-based classifier ensemble for Named Entity Recognition (NER). Our underlying assumption is that the reliability of predictions of each...

Visually and Phonologically Similar Characters in Incorrect Chinese Words: Analyses, Identification, and Applications
C.-L. Liu, M.-H. Lai, K.-W. Tien, Y.-H. Chuang, S.-H. Wu, C.-Y. Lee
Article No.: 10
DOI: 10.1145/1967293.1967297

Information about students’ mistakes opens a window to an understanding of their learning processes, and helps us design effective course work to help students avoid replication of the same errors. Learning from mistakes is important not...
