Point Process Models (PPM) have been widely used for keyword spotting applications. Training these models typically requires a considerable number of keyword examples. In this work, we consider a scenario where very few keyword examples are available for training. The availability of a limited number of training examples results in a PPM with poorly learnt parameters. We propose an unsupervised online learning algorithm that starts from a poor PPM model and updates the PPM parameters using newly detected samples of the keyword in a corpus under consideration and uses the updated model for further keyword detection. We test our algorithm on eight keywords taken from the TIMIT database, the training set of which, on average, has 469 samples of each keyword. With an initial set of only five samples of a keyword (corresponds to similar to 1% of the total number of samples) followed by the proposed online parameter updating throughout the entire TIMIT train set, the performance on the TIMIT test set using the final model is found to be comparable to that of a PPM trained with all the samples of the respective keyword available from the entire TIMIT train set.
