PDF Estimation using HMMs

The hidden Markov model (HMM) is a powerful statistical model that closely approximates many phenomenon found in nature, such as human speech. While a very powerful statistical model, a single HMM cannot easily act as a classifier between a wide variety of signal classes. Instead, it is best to design them specifically for each signal type and feature type. A versatile HMM software toolbox for MATLAB is also described.
