The 2013 Speaker Recognition Evaluation in Mobile Environment

This paper evaluates the performance of the twelve primary systems submitted to the evaluation on speaker verification in the context of a mobile environment using the MOBIO database. The mobile environment provides a challenging and realistic test-bed for current state-of-the-art speaker verification techniques. Results in terms of equal error rate (EER), half total error rate (HTER) and detection error tradeoff (DET) confirm that the best performing systems are based on total variability modeling, and fuse several subsystems. Nevertheless, the old good UBM-GMM based systems are still competitive. The results also show that the use of additional data for training as well as gender-dependent features can be helpful.
