Information-Theoretic Evaluation for Computational Biomedical Ontologies

The improvement of potent tools for the prediction of ontological annotations is a crucial objective in computational biology, but comparing their functionality is tough because of difficulties brought on by the constitution of biomedical ontologies and incomplete annotations of genes. This paintings proposes an information-theoretic framework to guage the functionality of computational protein functionality prediction.

This result is likely to redefine the way LPC vocoding is done, wherein a speech-to-speech synthesis (STS) framework becomes completely self-contained in finding units that can be used for speech synthesis at the decoder without needing any information about the residual. Chapter 2 Ultra Low Bit-Rate Coders In this chapter, we present the definition and principles of ultra-low bit-rate coders. Here the emphasis is to point to the fact that this class of coders is typically the ‘vocoders’, which are ‘parametric’ coders that are essentially linear-prediction (LP) based vocoders.

In contrast, [RWR87] employed a combinatorial search for the best segmentation of a given block of input speech, under the constraint that segment durations are to be from a finite set, and optimized to minimize the quantization error for the block. An interesting work by Svendsen [S94] showed that using an VQ codebook for quantizing segments derived automatically by the maximum-likelihood (ML) segmentation [SS87] yields a bit-rate reduction by a factor of 2, while preserving the speech quality.

Once the variable length segments are obtained, each of these segments sk, k ¼ 1, . , K is quantized using the best segment cqk in the segment codebook C ¼ (c1, c2, . , cN) defined as the segment yielding the lowest segmental distortion. This is shown in Fig. 12. Quantizing an input segment to the best matching segment from the segment codebook calls for the definition of a distance metric to measure the segmental distortion between two arbitrary variable-length segments (the input segment to be quantized and a segment from the segment codebook).
