Radial Basis Functions for Speech Recognition
the purpose of this paper is to study the application of Radial Basis Functions (RBF) to automatic speech recognition. Results of several experiments with these networks on the recognition of phonemes for the TIMIT database are presented, including an experiment on a recurrent network of RBFs.
