Mark Wahlberg and Kevin Bacon star in this drama based on the events surrounding the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. With the streets of central Boston lined with people supporting the runners as they complete the final stages of the race, brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (Themo Melikidze and Alex Wolff) set off two powerful home-made bombs next to the finishing line. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, Police Sergeant Tommy Saunders (Wahlberg) joins a number of courageous first responders as they attempt to contain the situation and tend to the wounded. Meanwhile, with the city in lockdown, FBI agent Richard DesLauriers (Bacon) and Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis (John Goodman) must put differences aside as they lead a city-wide search for the bombers before they can strike again. The cast also includes Michelle Monaghan, Melissa Benoist and J.K. Simmons.

An ex-cop finds himself in over his head when he agrees to help out the mayor of New York City in this tense political thriller from director Allen Hughes. Having had to sacrifice a promising career when he was involved in a controversial shooting, tough street cop Billy Taggart (Mark Wahlberg) is spared a prison stretch by the intervention of the city's popular Mayor Nicholas Hostetler (Russell Crowe). Starting afresh as a private investigator, Billy is soon hired by Hostetler to find out if his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is being unfaithful. But when her suspected lover is later found dead, Billy realises too late that the mayor's motives run deeper than expected, and that if he's to stay alive, he needs to take the fight to his opponents, risking all to reveal the truth.

Articulatory Speech Synthesis from the Fluid Dynamics of the Vocal Apparatus (Paperback, New): Stephen Levinson, Don Davis,... Articulatory Speech Synthesis from the Fluid Dynamics of the Vocal Apparatus (Paperback, New)
Stephen Levinson, Don Davis, Scot Slimon, Jun Huang
R901 Discovery Miles 9 010 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This book addresses the problem of articulatory speech synthesis based on computed vocal tract geometries and the basic physics of sound production in it. Unlike conventional methods based on analysis/synthesis using the well-known source filter model, which assumes the independence of the excitation and filter, we treat the entire vocal apparatus as one mechanical system that produces sound by means of fluid dynamics. The vocal apparatus is represented as a three-dimensional time-varying mechanism and the sound propagation inside it is due to the non-planar propagation of acoustic waves through a viscous, compressible fluid described by the Navier-Stokes equations. We propose a combined minimum energy and minimum jerk criterion to compute the dynamics of the vocal tract during articulation. Theoretical error bounds and experimental results show that this method obtains a close match to the phonetic target positions while avoiding abrupt changes in the articulatory trajectory. The vocal folds are set into aerodynamic oscillation by the flow of air from the lungs. The modulated air stream then excites the moving vocal tract. This method shows strong evidence for source-filter interaction. Based on our results, we propose that the articulatory speech production model has the potential to synthesize speech and provide a compact parameterization of the speech signal that can be useful in a wide variety of speech signal processing problems. Table of Contents: Introduction / Literature Review / Estimation of Dynamic Articulatory Parameters / Construction of Articulatory Model Based on MRI Data / Vocal Fold Excitation Models / Experimental Results of Articulatory Synthesis / Conclusion

Mathematical Models for Speech Technology (Hardcover): Stephen Levinson Mathematical Models for Speech Technology (Hardcover)
Stephen Levinson
R2,761 Discovery Miles 27 610 Out of stock

"Mathematical Models of Spoken Language" presents the motivations for, intuitions behind, and basic mathematical models of natural spoken language communication. A comprehensive overview is given of all aspects of the problem from the physics of speech production through the hierarchy of linguistic structure and ending with some observations on language and mind.

The author comprehensively explores the argument that these modern technologies are actually the most extensive compilations of linguistic knowledge available.Throughout the book, the emphasis is on placing all the material in a mathematically coherent and computationally tractable framework that captures linguistic structure.

It presents material that appears nowhere else and gives a unification of formalisms and perspectives used by linguists and engineers. Its unique features include a coherent nomenclature that emphasizes the deep connections amongst the diverse mathematical models and explores the methods by means of which they capture linguistic structure.

This contrasts with some of the superficial similarities described in the existing literature; the historical background and origins of the theories and models; the connections to related disciplines, e.g. artificial intelligence, automata theory and information theory; an elucidation of the current debates and their intellectual origins; many important little-known results and some original proofs of fundamental results, e.g. a geometric interpretation of parameter estimation techniques for stochastic models and finally the author's own unique perspectives on the future of this discipline.

There is a vast literature on Speech Recognition and Synthesis however, this book is unlike any other in the field. Although it appears to be a rapidly advancing field, the fundamentals have not changed in decades. Most of the results are presented in journals from which it is difficult to integrate and evaluate all of these recent ideas. Some of the fundamentals have been collected into textbooks, which give detailed descriptions of the techniques but no motivation or perspective. The linguistic texts are mostly descriptive and pictorial, lacking the mathematical and computational aspects. This book strikes a useful balance by covering a wide range of ideas in a common framework. It provides all the basic algorithms and computational techniques and an analysis and perspective, which allows one to intelligently read the latest literature and understand state-of-the-art techniques as they evolve.
