Neuron-Like Approach to Speech Recognition


In this paper, we present a new approach to speech recognition based on A. Zhdanov’s biomorphic neuron-like networks, which is also known as the autonomous adaptive control (AAC) method. In contrast to artificial neural networks (ANNs), a neuron in the AAC method is itself a self-learning pattern recognition system. We attempt to build a speech recognition system as a construction of such neurons without a program component. If this attempt is successful, then we will be able to simulate the natural principle of speech recognition not only in a program way but also via parallel hardware implementations. We understand the speech recognition problem as one of the speech processes in natural nervous systems that is to be simulated.
