Speaker verification system Patent #: 4910782
AbstractA speaker recognition apparatus employs a non-parametric baseline algorithm for speaker recognition which characterizes a given speaker's speech patterns by a set of speech feature vectors, and generates match scores which are sums of a ScoreA set equal to the average of the minimum Euclidean squared distance between the unknown speech frame and all reference frames of a given speaker over all frames of the unknown input, and ScoreB set equal to the average of the minimum Euclidean squared distance between each frame of the reference set to all frames of the unknown input. The performance on a queue of talkers is further improved by normalization of reference message match distances. The improved baseline algorithm addresses the co-channel problem of speaker spotting when plural speech signals are intermixed on the same channel by using a union of reference sets for pairs of speakers as the reference set for a co-channel signal, and/or by conversational state modelling.
