Adaptive noise filtering based on artificial hydrocarbon networks: An application to audio signals uri icon


  • Many audio signal applications are corrupted by noise. In particular, adaptive filters are frequently applied to white noise reduction in audio. Recent work provides that there exist some insights on using an artificial intelligence method called artificial hydrocarbon networks (AHNs) for filtering audio signals. Thus, the scope of this paper is to design and implement a novel approach of artificial hydrocarbon networks on adaptive filtering for audio signals. Three experiments were developed. Results demonstrate that AHNs can reduce noise from audio signals. A comparison between the proposed algorithm and a FIR-filter is also provided. The short-time objective intelligibility value (STOI) and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) were used for evaluation. At last, the proposed training method for finding the parameters involved in the AHN-filter can also be used in other fields of application. ¬© 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
