nnmnkwii.preprocessing.meanvar(dataset, lengths=None, mean_=0.0, var_=0.0, last_sample_count=0, return_last_sample_count=False)[source]

Mean/variance computation given a iterable dataset

Dataset can have variable length samples. In that cases, you need to explicitly specify lengths for all the samples.

  • dataset (nnmnkwii.datasets.Dataset) – Dataset

  • lengths – (list): Frame lengths for each dataset sample.

  • mean_ (array or scalar) – Initial value for mean vector.

  • var_ (array or scaler) – Initial value for variance vector.

  • last_sample_count (int) – Last sample count. Default is 0. If you set non-default mean_ and var_, you need to set last_sample_count property. Typically this will be the number of time frames ever seen.

  • return_last_sample_count (bool) – Return last_sample_count if True.


Mean and variance for each dimention. If

return_last_sample_count is True, returns last_sample_count as well.
