Volterra Series for Analyzing MLP based Phoneme Posterior Probability Estimator

We present a framework to apply Volterra series to analyze multilayered perceptrons trained to estimate the posterior probabilities of phonemes in automatic speech recognition. The identified Volterra kernels reveal the spectro-temporal patterns that are learned by the trained system for each phoneme. To demonstrate the applicability of Volterra series, we analyze a multilayered perceptron trained using Mel filter bank energy features and analyze its first order Volterra kernels.
