I imagine that the most important signal processing you are after isn't signal processing at all in the classical sense, in that the 'top-down' components are so ubiquitous and unquantifiable. That is, recognition of different pronouncements / acoustic conditions relies on 'context processing' and hypothesis testing far more than a strict analysis of audio signal data. regards ppl ----- Original Message ----- From: "M & E" <mariusm(at)PARYS.CO.ZA> To: <AUDITORY(at)LISTS.MCGILL.CA> Sent: 26 March 2002 18:52 Subject: Neural Sound Processing Schemes > Hi, > > I am developing a very advanced artificial intelligence system.
