Designing a state-of-the-art large vocabulary speech recognition systems is a highly complex problem. A wide range of techniques are available that affect the performance and number of free parameters. Selecting the appropriate complexity of system is both time-consuming and only a limited number of possible systems can be examined. This paper presents initial results on automatic system selection when both the number of dimensions and the number of components vary. Various complexity control schemes are discussed and evaluated. Limitations of schemes based on predicting held-out data log-likelihoods are described. In addition, problems of standard approximations for this task are detailed.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
