Chin-Hui Lee (Georgia Tech) “A Regression Approach to Spectral Mapping for Speech Enhancement” @ Hackerman Hall B17
Nov 12 @ 12:00 pm – 1:15 pm
Abstract Based on Komogorov’s Superposition Theorem and Universal Approximation Theorem by Cybenko and Barron, any multivariate function can be approximated by a multi-layer perceptron. We therefore cast classical speech pre-processing problems into a regression setting[...]
