Machine learning is increasing being used in speech analysis for automatic speech feature extraction. It has immense appeal as many of the machine learning platforms are much easier to use than the traditional speech processing methods. When it comes to the recognition of speech machine learning has been used with great success. However the question is can machine learning techniques be used for accurate measurement of specific speech features? This project investigates the use of machine learning in the identification of an important speech feature, called a formant, and compares the results to traditional formant estimation methods.
