The Viterbi algorithm is a dynamic programming algorithm for finding the most likely sequence of hidden states—called the Viterbi path —that results in a sequence of observed events, especially in the context of Markov information sources and hidden Markov models.

The algorithm has found universal application in decoding the convolutional codes used in both CDMA and GSM digital cellular, dial-up modems, satellite, deep-space communications, and It is now also commonly used in speech recognition algorithmme, speech synthesisdiarization[1] keyword spottingcomputational linguisticsand bioinformatics.

For example, in speech-to-text speech recognitionthe acoustic signal is treated as the observed sequence of events, and a algorihtme of text is considered to be the “hidden cause” of the acoustic signal.

The Viterbi algorithm finds the most likely string of text given the acoustic signal. The Viterbi algorithm is named after Andrew Viterbiwho proposed it in as a decoding algorithm for convolutional codes over noisy digital communication links. A generalization of the Viterbi algorithm, termed the max-sum algorithm or max-product algorithm can be used to find the most likely assignment of all or some subset of latent variables in a large number of graphical modelse.

Bayesian networksMarkov random fields and conditional random fields. The latent variables need in ed to be connected in a way somewhat similar to an HMM, with a limited number of connections dw variables and some type of linear structure among the variables.


The general algorithm involves message passing and is substantially similar to the belief propagation algorithm which is the generalization of the forward-backward algorithm. With the algorithm called iterative Viterbi decoding one can find the subsequence of an observation that matches best on average to a given hidden Markov model. This algorithm is proposed by Qi Wang et al.

An alternative algorithm, the Lazy Viterbi algorithmhas been proposed.

While the original Viterbi algorithm calculates every node in the trellis of possible outcomes, the Lazy Viterbi algorithm maintains a prioritized list of nodes to evaluate in order, and the number of calculations required is typically fewer and never more than the ordinary Viterbi algorithm for the same result.

However, it is not so easy [ clarification needed ] to parallelize in hardware. Here we’re using the standard definition of arg max. A better estimation exists if the maximum in the internal loop is instead found by iterating only over states that directly link to the current state i. Consider a village where all villagers are either healthy or have a fever and only the village doctor can determine whether each has a fever. The doctor diagnoses fever by asking patients how they feel.

The villagers may only answer that they feel normal, dizzy, or cold. The doctor believes that the health condition of his patients operate as a discrete Markov chain.

There are two states, “Healthy” and “Fever”, but the doctor cannot observe them directly; they are hidden from him. The observations normal, cold, dizzy along with a hidden state healthy, fever form a hidden Markov model HMMand can be represented as follows in the Python programming language:.

The patient visits three days in a row and the doctor discovers that on the first day he feels normal, on the second day he feels cold, on the third day he feels dizzy. The doctor has a question: This is answered by the Viterbi algorithm. The function viterbi takes the following arguments: This reveals that the observations [‘normal’, ‘cold’, ‘dizzy’] were most likely generated by states [‘Healthy’, ‘Healthy’, ‘Fever’].


In other words, given the observed activities, the patient was most likely to have been healthy both on the first day when he felt normal as well as on the second day when he felt cold, and then he contracted a fever the third day. The operation of Viterbi’s algorithm can be visualized by means of a trellis diagram. The Viterbi path is essentially the shortest path through this trellis. The trellis for the clinic example is shown below; the corresponding Viterbi path is in bold:.
