What is a Hidden Markov Model - Artificial Neural Network (HMM-ANN)?

As far as I know, neural networks have hidden computational units and HMM has hidden states. Hidden Markov Models can be used to generate a language, that is, list elements from a family of strings. ...

How can I use a Hidden Markov Model to recognize images?

How could I use a 16x16 image as an input in a HMM? And at the same time how would I train it? Can I use backpropagation?

Can hidden Markov models be used to model any time series data?

Can HMMs be used to model any time series data? Or does the data have to be that of a Markov process? In HTK documentation, I see that the first few lines state that it can model any time series ...

Can HMM, MRF, or CRF be used to classify the state of a single observation, not the entire observation sequence?

I learn that the Viterbi algorithm used for Hidden Markov Model (HMM) can classify a sequence of hidden states from the corresponding observations; Markov Random Field (MRF) and Conditional Random ...

Expected duration in a state

I am going through Rabiner 1989 and he writes that the discrete probability density function of duration $d$ in state $i$ (that is, staying in a state for duration $d$, conditioned on starting in that ...

is a “word prediction” problem, applicable using HMMs?

I'm learning HMMs and decided to model a problem for learning purposes. I came to this idea of word predicting by letters. here is the model : while typing, the word is typed letter by letter, so we ...

What are the differences between CRF and HMM?

What I know about CRF is that they are discriminative models, while HMM are generative models, but, in the inference method, both use the same algorithm, that is, the Viterbi algorithm, and forward ...

Is the Markov property assumed in the forward algorithm?

I'm majoring in pure linguistics (not computational), and I don't have any basic knowledge regarding computational science or mathematics. But I happen to take "Automatic Speech Recognition" course in ...
