Noise-robust speaker recognition based on morphological component analysis

Yongjun He, Chen Chen, Jiqing Han

Speaker recognition suffers severe performance degradation under noisy environments. To solve this problem, we propose a novel method based on morphological component analysis. This method employs a universal background dictionary (UBD) to model common variability of all speakers, a speech dictionary of each speaker to model special variability of this speaker and a noise dictionary to model variability of environmental noise. These three dictionaries are concatenated to be a big dictionary, over which test speech is sparsely represented and classified. To improve the discriminability of speaker dictionaries, we optimize the speaker dictionaries by removing speaker atoms which are close to the UBD atoms. To ensure varying noises can be tracked, we design an algorithm to update the noise dictionary with the noisy speech. We finally conduct experiments under various noise conditions and the results show that the proposed method can obviously improve the robustness of speaker recognition under noisy environments.
