Well-calibrated heavy tailed Bayesian speaker verification for microphone speech
The work presented in this paper is an extension of our two previous works [1, 2]. In the first paper [1], we proposed a low dimensional feature (i-vectors) extractor which is suitable for both telephone and microphone data of the NIST speaker recognition evaluation dataset. The second paper [2] introduces the use of Probabilistic Linear Discriminant Analysis (PLDA) framework with a heavy tailed distribution for speaker verification. The advantage of PLDA comes from the fact that it does not require eigenchannel modelization nor scores normalization. However, this approach is only known for its success on telephone data speech but not for microphone data. We propose to overcome this drawback by using PLDA as a second pass at the front-end feature extraction as well as a classifier. We present results on female speakers for the interview-interview condition in NIST2010 SRE. As measured by equal error rate (ERR) and NIST detection cost function (DCF), results with raw scores are 17% ...
