1. System and method for the automatic discovery of salient segments in speech transcripts

    A system and associated method automatically discover salient segments in a speech transcript and focus on the segmentation of an audio/video source into topically cohesive segments based on Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) transcriptions. The word n-grams are extracted from the speech transcript using a three-phase segmentation algorithm based on the following sequence or combination of boundary-based and content-based methods: a boundary-based method; a rate of arrival of feature method; and a content-based method. In the first two segmentation passes, the temporal proximity and the rate of arrival of features are analyzed to compute an initial segmentation. In the third ...
