Abstract. A technique is presented for optimization of Gaussian mixture models (GMM) size during the training of hidden Markov models (HMM), an essential part of many of the automatic speech recognition systems. Application of the technique increases recognition accuracy by avoiding the over-fitting effect, and reduces significantly computational load of the recognition procedure.
