Abstract : This paper investigates recently proposed Stranded Gaussian Mixture acoustic Model (SGMM) for Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR). This model extends conventional hidden Markov model (HMM-GMM) by explicitly introducing dependencies between components of the observation Gaussian mixture densities. The main objective of the paper is to experimentally study, how useful SGMM can be for dealing with data, which contains different sources of acoustic variability. First studied sources of variability are age and gender in quiet environment (TIdigits task including child speech). Second, the SGMM modeling is applied on data produced by different speakers and corrupted by non-stationary noise (CHiME 2013 challenge data). Finally, SGMM is applied on the same noisy data, but after performing speech enhancement (i.e., the remaining variability mostly comes from residual noise and different speakers). Although SGMM was originally proposed for robust speech recognition of noisy data, in this work it was found, that the model is more efficient for handling speaker variability in quiet environment.
