Abstract

In this work we study the parallelization of the training phase for an automatic speech recognition system using the Hidden Markov Models. The vocabulary is uniformly distributed on processors, but the Markovian network of the treated application is duplicated on all processors. The proposed parallel algorithms are based on two strategies of communications. In the first one, called regrouping algorithm, communications are delayed until the training of all local sentences is finished. In the second one, called cutting algorithm, packages of optimal sizes is firstly determined and then asynchronous communications are performed after the training of each package. Experimental results show that good performances can be obtained with the second algorithm.
