computeIIF-C - a C-implementation for the computation of Invariant Integration Feature

Recently, invariant integration features (IIFs) have been proposed as an alternative to the standard feature extraction methods for automatic speech recognition.

The IIFs are based on the idea of constructing invariant features by integrating nonlinearly transformed input signals over a finite transformation group. In the context of feature extraction for ASR, monomials up to a certain order are a good choice as nonlinear functions. Experiments showed that the IIFs perform superior compared to MFCCs and PLPs, especially in mismatching training-testing conditions.

A C-program for the computation of IIFs was implemented by a student worker at our institute. It can be downloaded here.
