Abstract
CONSIDERATION OF NEURALAND COCHLEA-BASED MODELS OF AUDITORY PROCESSING SUGGEST ANALOG PROCESSES THAT WILL BE IMPLEMENTED TO DEMONSTRATE: (1) A SPECTRAL SHAPE BASIS FOR PHONEME RECOGNITION; (2) ROBUST RECOGNITION OF PHONEME CLASSES; (3) SPEAKER INDEPENDENCE; AND (4) VOICE-SYNCHRONOUS PROCESSING. DEMONSTRATIONS WILL BE IMPLEMENTED ON AN IBM-COMPATIBLE PC USING NOVEL DISPLAY MECHANISMS THAT DIRECTLY PORTRAY THE PHONEME CONTENT OF SPEECH AS A FUNCTION OF TIME. THE EFFORT INVOLVES DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF A SPECTRAL PROCESSING CARD THAT INSTALLS IN A COMPUTER ACCESSORY SLOT AND FOUR SOFTWARE FUNCTIONS IMPLEMENTED USING THE APL LANGUAGE.
