ALIZE is an open-source platform for speaker recognition. The ALIZE library implements a low-level statistical engine based on the well-known Gaussian mixture modelling. The toolkit includes a set of high level tools dedicated to speaker recognition based on the latest developments in speaker recognition such as Joint Factor Analysis, Support Vector Machine, i-vector modelling and Probabilistic Linear Discriminant Analysis. Since 2005, the performance of ALIZE has been demonstrated in series of Speaker Recognition Evaluations (SREs) conducted by NIST and has been used by many participants in the last NIST-SRE 2012. This paper presents the latest version of the corpus and performance on the NIST-SRE 2010 extended task.
