Embedded Segmental K-Means (ES-KMeans)

License: GPL v3 Open in Colab

Overview

Unsupervised acoustic word segmentation and clustering using the embedded segmental K-means (ES-KMeans) algorithm. The algorithm is described in:

H. Kamper, K. Livescu, and S. J. Goldwater, "An embedded segmental K-means model for unsupervised segmentation and clustering of speech," in Proc. ASRU, 2017. [arXiv]

Please cite this paper if you use the code.

Installation

Dependencies can be installed in a conda environment:

conda env create -f environment.yml
conda activate eskmeans

Perform unit tests:

nosetests -v

Examples

A number of example notebooks are given in examples/. The examples/eskmeans_example.ipynb notebook provides a step-by-step example of the ES-KMeans algorithm. This notebook can also be opened directly in a Colab notebook.

Recipe

The code here only provides the main algorithm and some supporting utilities. A complete recipe where ES-KMeans is applied to the Buckeye English and NCHLT Xitsonga datasets is available here.

The module utils/theta_oscillator.py is a derivation of Adriana Stan's Python implementation available at https://github.com/speech-utcluj/thetaOscillator-syllable-segmentation, which was released under the same license. Concrete changes to Adriana's code are listed in the documentation at the top of the module. I also list Adriana as a contributor below.
