On the Performance and Use of Speaker Recognition Systems for Surveillance
Barger, Peter J. & Sridharan, Sridha (2006) On the Performance and Use of Speaker Recognition Systems for Surveillance. In IEEE International Conference on Video and Signal Based Surveillance, 2006. AVSS '06, Nov. 2006, Sydney, Australia.
We model the performance of a speaker recognition system used for surveillance to prioritize a large number of candidate speakers in search of a single target speaker. It is assumed that the system operates by ordering all speakers in order from best match to worst match, with the goal of having the true speaker sample positioned as high as possible on the list. Some performance measures for prioritization systems are given and are applied to a real speaker recognition system. An analytic expression for the probability density function of the true speaker ¿s position on the list is found, subject to basic assumptions concerning the distribution of true speaker and false speaker scores. A comparison is made to the performance of a system which is operating only by making verification decisions, and it is shown that making soft decisions results in significantly better surveillance performance.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
