Abstract

Training the speaker and session subspaces is an integral problem in developing a joint factor analysis GMM speaker verification system. This work investigates and compares several alternative procedures for this task with a particular focus on training and testing with short utterances. Experiments show that better performance can be obtained when an independent rather than simultaneous optimisation of the two core variability subspaces is used. It is additionally shown that for verification trials on short utterances it is important for the session subspace to be trained with matched length utterances. Conversely, the speaker transform should always be trained with as much data as possible.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
