Classification of acoustic signals with new feature: Fibonacci space (FSp)
MetadataShow full item record
In this study, a new feature and feature space (FSp) are introduced by using the approach of Fibonacci series formation. The results are presented as two experimental studies. The nine groups of acoustic signals and pathological human voices are investigated in the first and second experiments, respectively. Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) and Multi-Class Support Vector Machines (M-SVMs) are used to figure out the effect of the proposed feature and its FSp on the classification accuracy. It is observed that the proposed feature and its formed space yield significant results for the discrimination of those signals. Experimental studies show that the classification accuracy of test data is increased by 5.3% when the proposed feature is used with CNN and M-SVMs. In addition, each acoustic group is significantly discriminated in both experimental studies. It is concluded that the proposed feature and its space can be used as a temporal feature for different purposes such as automatic speech recognition, pattern recognition, and emotional voice discrimination etc. (C) 2018 Elsevier Ltd.
