This algorithm implements the Maximum-a-posteriori (MAP) estimation

This algorithm is a legacy one. The API has changed since its implementation. New versions and forks will need to be updated.

Algorithms have at least one input and one output. All algorithm endpoints are organized in groups. Groups are used by the platform to indicate which inputs and outputs are synchronized together. The first group is automatically synchronized with the channel defined by the block in which the algorithm is deployed.

For a given set of feature vectors and a Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM), this algorithm implements the Maximum-a-posteriori (MAP) estimation (adapting only the means).

Details of MAP estimation can be found in the paper: Reynolds, Douglas A., Thomas F. Quatieri, and Robert B. Dunn. "Speaker verification using adapted Gaussian mixture models." Digital signal processing 10.1 (2000): 19-41. A very good description on how the MAP estimation works can be found in the Mathematical Monks's YouTube channel.z

This algorithm relies on the Bob library.
