Reversals of signal-posterior monotonicity for any bounded prior
Paul Milgrom (The Bell Journal of Economics, 12(2): 380–391) showed that if the strict monotone likelihood ratio property (MLRP) does not hold for a conditional distribution the...

On the dynamic selection of biometric fusion algorithms
Biometric fusion consolidates the output of multiple biometric classifiers to render a decision about the identity of an individual. We consider the problem of designing a fusion s...

Hyperparameter learning in probabilistic prototype-based models
We present two approaches to extend Robust Soft Learning Vector Quantization (RSLVQ). This algorithm for nearest prototype classification is derived from an explicit cost functio...

Estimating divergence functionals and the likelihood ratio by convex risk minimization
We develop and analyze M-estimation methods for divergence functionals and the likelihood ratios of two probability distributions. Our method is based on a non-asymptotic variatio...

Voice activity detection using harmonic frequency components in likelihood ratio test
This paper proposes a new statistical model-based likelihood ratio test (LRT) VAD to obtain reliable speech / non-speech decisions. In the proposed method, the likelihood ratio (L...
