Speech Processing

AM development

Environment

  • Already buy 3 760GPU
  • grid-9/12 760GPU crashed again; grid-11 shutdown automatically.
  • Change 760gpu card of grid-12 and grid-14(+).

Sparse DNN

RNN AM

  • Initial nnet seems not very well, need to be pre-trained or test lower learn-rate.
  • For AURORA 4 1h/epoch, model train done.
  • Using AURORA 4 short-sentence with a smaller number of targets.(+)
  • Adjusting the learning rate.(+)
  • Trying toolkit of Microsoft.(+)
  • details at http://liuc.cslt.org/pages/rnnam.html
  • Reading papers

A new nnet training scheduler

Drop out & Rectification & convolutive network

  • Drop out(+)
  • AURORA4 dataset
  • Use different proportion of noise data to investigate the effect of xEnt and mpe and dropout
    • Problem 1) The effect of dropout in different noise proportion;

          2) The effect of MPE in different noise proportion;
          3) The effect of MPE+dropout in different noise proportion.
    • Find and test unknown noise test-data.(++)
    • Have done the droptout on normal trained XEnt NNET , eg wsj(learn-rate:1e-4/1e-5). Seems small learn-rate get the balance of accuracy and train-time.
  • MaxOut(+)
  • pretraining based maxout, can't use large learning-rate.
    • Select units in Groupsize interval, but need low learn-rate
  • SoftMaxout
  • P-norm
  • Need to solve the too small learning-rate problem
    • Add one normalization layer after the pnorm-layer
  • Convolutive network (+)
  • AURORA 4
