U.S. Patent: 7,505,902
A potential use for the classification system is to discriminate speech from non-speech. Non-speech, for example, could consist of animal vocalizations, music, or environmental sounds. In head-to-head comparisons with two other state-of the-art approaches to discriminating between speech and non-speech, the multiscale spectro-temporal system performed significantly better.
These algorithms also have applications in audio and data retrieval, archival management, modern human-computer interfaces, and in the entertainment and security industries. The researchers are also working on developing algorithms to enhance speech in noisy environments using an auditory model.
