Unseen Noise Estimation Using Separable Deep Auto Encoder for Speech Enhancement
—Unseen noise estimation is a key yet challenging step to make a speech enhancement algorithm work in adverse environments. At worst, the only prior knowledge we know about the encountered noise is that it is different from the involved speech. Therefore, by subtracting the components which cannot be adequately represented by a well defined speech model, the noises can be estimated and removed. Given the good performance of deep learning in signal representation, a deep auto encoder (DAE) is employed in this work for accurately modeling the clean speech spectrum. In the subsequent stage of speech enhancement, an extra DAE is introduced to represent the residual part obtained by subtracting the estimated clean speech spectrum (by using the pre-trained DAE) from the noisy speech spectrum. By adjusting the estimated clean speech spectrum and the unknown parameters of the noise DAE, one can reach a stationary point to minimize the total reconstruction error of the noisy speech spectrum....
