Structural Framework for Combining Speaker Recognition Methods

The paper describes a structural framework for the design of a speaker recognition system based on multiple models. This combination is not only at the recognition level, but also at a joint training of the models. This unified training of the models uses a common structure : a decomposition tree of the set of data of normalization speakers. For the experiments, the Gaussian Mixture Model and the Auto-Regressive Vectorial Model are the two models we have selected to test the structural framework of the speaker verification scoring combination. This approach has been tested on a subset of the 30"-NIST’97 Speaker Recognition Evaluation corpus. The list of the files of this subset (i.e., normalization, training and test) can be found at
