# Seminal Papers in ASR

*This list is ever-growingâ€¦ if you have a paper to add, let me know:)*

## i-vectors

### Dehak et al. (2010) *Front-End Factor Analysis For Speaker Verification*

Seminal i-vector paper. The application is speaker identification.

### Soan et al. (2013) *Speaker Adaptation of Neural Network Acoustic Models Using I-Vectors*

First use of i-vectors for DNN speaker adaptation in ASR.

## Context-Dependent Triphone State-Tying

### Young et al. (1994) *Tree-based state tying for high accuracy acoustic modelling*

## Weighted Finite-State Transducer Decoding

### Mohri et al. (2001) *Weighted Finite-State Transducers in Speech Recognition*

## MLLR Adaptation

### Leggetter & Woodland (1995) *Maximum likelihood linear regression for speaker adaptation of continuous density hidden Markov models*
