Sequential estimation techniques and application to multiple speaker tracking and language modeling PhD Thesis

Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany, 2017.

For many real-word applications, the considered data is given as a time sequence that becomes available in an orderly fashion, where the order incorporates important information about the entities of interest. The work presented in this thesis deals with two such cases by introducing new sequential estimation solutions. More precisely, we introduce a: I. Sequential Bayesian estimation framework to solve the multiple speaker localization, detection and tracking problem. This framework is a complete pipeline that includes 1) new observation estimators, which extract a fixed number of potential locations per time frame; 2) new unsupervised Bayesian detectors, which classify these estimates into noise/speaker classes and 3) new Bayesian filters, which use the speaker class estimates to track multiple speakers.

This framework was developed to tackle the low overlap detection rate of multiple speakers and to reduce the number of constraints generally imposed in standard solutions. II. Sequential neural estimation framework for language modeling, which overcomes some of the shortcomings of standard approaches through merging of different models in a hybrid architecture. That is, we introduce two solutions that tightly merge particular models and then show how a generalization can be achieved through a new mixture model. In order to speed-up the training of large vocabulary language models, we introduce a new extension of the noise contrastive estimation approach to batch training.
