Review Text

"Deep Learning (DL) has demonstrated a phenomenal success in various AI applications. ... This book by two leading experts in Deep Learning is certainly a welcome addition to the literature of the field, particularly in automatic speech recognition. ... this book presents a very valuable vista of the state-of-art of Deep Learning, focusing on speech recognition applications." (Robert Kozma, Mathematical Reviews, September, 2017)

"The book addresses real-world problems of current interest regarding automatic speech recognition. ... This book is useful for all researchers working in automatic speech recognition as well as in real-world applications of deep learning." (Ruxandra Stoean, zbMATH 1356.68004, 2017)
