This paper compares two of the leading techniques for session variability compensation in the context of GMM mean supervector SVM classifiers for speaker recognition: inter-session variability modelling and nuisance attribute projection. The former is incorporated in the GMM model training while the latter is employed as a modified SVM kernel. Results on both the NIST 2005 and 2006 corpora demonstrate the effectiveness of both techniques for reducing the effects of session variation. Further, system- and score-level fusion experiments show that the combination of the two methods provides improved performance.

Citation counts are 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.
