Full title: 
Reservoir Computing for Auditive Pattern Recognition
Project date: 
1 January, 2010 - 31 December, 2013

The aim of this project is to carry out fundamental research into the application of reservoir computing (RC) for some challenging auditory pattern recognition applications such as spatial environment recognition from a multi-channel sonar signal, continuous speech recognition in background noise and instrument recognition in polyphonic music. These applications have in common that they use similar time-frequency representations of the signals and that they require an explicit dynamic behaviour of the pattern recognition system.
