Evaluation of Kernal Methods for Speaker Verification and Identification
MetadataShow full item record
Support vector machines are evaluated on speaker verification and speaker identification tasks. We compare the polynomial kernel, the Fisher kernel, a likelihood ratio kernel and the pair hidden Markov model kernel with baseline systems based on a discriminative polynomial classifier and generative Gaussian mixture model classifiers. Simulations were carried out on the YOHO database and some promising results were obtained.
