FastICA is a kind of independent component analysis (ICA), which is robust and high performance algorithm, it can strongly remove signal correlation and ensure each signal to be independence. Through perceptual test, improving that RASTA is an idea which can denoise effectively. First, we remove signal correlation through FastICA algorithm, then we use RASTA filter to filtering the ceptral coefficients. Finally, we reduce dimension of the cepstral coefficients by the variances of cepstral coefficients in different dimension and obtain our features. By the HTK3.3, the speech feature extraction which was presented in this paper show the better robust in recognition experiment.
