In this paper, a novel strategy is proposed that makes use of level-building algorithm with a chain of AdaBoost HMM classifiers to model long stochastic processes. AdaBoost HMM classifier belongs to the class of multiple-HMM classifier. It is specially trained to identify samples with erratic distributions. By connecting the AdaBoost HMM classifiers, processes of arbitrary length can be modeled. A probability trellis is created to store the accumulated probabilities, starting frames and indices of each reference model. By backtracking the trellis, a sequence of best-matched AdaBoost HMM classifiers can be decoded. The proposed method is applied to visual speech processing. A selected number of words and phrases are decomposed into sequences of visual speech units using both the proposed strategy and the conventional level-building on HMM method. Experimental results show that the proposed strategy is able to more accurately decompose words/phrases in visual speech than the conventional approach.||Source Title:||IEICE Transactions on Information and Systems||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/56489||ISSN:||09168532|
