Hence, there are 52 training examples from each speaker. The speakers are grouped into sets of 30 speakers each, 4 groups can serve as training set, the last group as the test set. A total of 3 examples are missing, the authors dropped them due to difficulties in recording. This is a good domain for a noisy, perceptual task. It is also a very good domain for testing the scaling abilities of algorithms. For example, C4.5 on this domain is slower than backpropagation! ### Source * Creators: Ron Cole and Mark Fanty Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Oregon Graduate Institute, Beaverton, OR 97006. cole '@', fanty '@' * Donor: Tom Dietterich Department of Computer Science Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR 97331 tgd '@' ### Attributes Information All attributes are continuous, real-valued attributes scaled into the range -1.0 to 1.0. The features are described in the paper by Cole and Fanty cited below. The features include spectral coefficients; contour features, sonorant features, pre-sonorant features, and post-sonorant features. The exact order of appearance of the features is not known. ### Relevant papers Fanty, M., Cole, R. (1991). Spoken letter recognition. In Lippman, R. P., Moody, J., and Touretzky, D. S. (Eds).
