Méthodes de séparation aveugle de sources fondées sur des transformées temps-fréquence. Application à des signaux de parole.

Abstract : Several time-frequency (TF) blind source separation (BSS) methods have been proposed in this thesis. In the systems output that have been used, a contribution of each source is estimated, using only mixed signals. All the methods proposed in this manuscript find tiny TF zones where only one source is active and estimate the mixing parameters in these zones. These approaches are particularly well suited for non-stationary sources (speech, music).
We first studied and improved linear instantaneous methods based on variance or correlation criteria, that have been previously proposed by our team. They yield excellent performance for signals of speech and can also separate spectra from astrophysical data. However, the nature of the mixtures that they can process limits their application fields.
We have extended these approaches to more realistic mixtures. The first extensions consider attenuated and delayed mixtures of sources, which corresponds to mixtures in anechoic chamber. They require less restrictive sparsity assumptions than some approaches previously proposed in the literature, while addressing the same type of mixtures. We have studied the contribution of clustering techniques to our approaches and have achieved good performance for mixtures of speech signals.
Lastly, a theoretical extension of these methods to general convolutive mixtures is described. It needs strong sparsity hypotheses and we have to solve classical indeterminacies of frequency-domain BSS methods.
