Non-Linear Predictive Vector Quantization of Speech

In this paper we propose a Non-Linear Predictive Vector quantizer (PVQ) for speech coding, based on Multi-Layer Perceptrons. We also propose a method to evaluate if a quantizer is well designed, and if it exploits the correlation between consecutive outputs. Although the results of the Non-linear PVQ do not improve the results of the nonlinear scalar predictor, we check that there is some room for the PVQ improvement.
