Speech group took the first place in the VoxCeleb Speaker Recognition Challenge
The Speech@FIT group achieves another great success in an international competition. Its members, Shuai Wang and Hossein Zeinali, received award certificates for the first place in the VoxCeleb Speaker Recognition Challenge (VoxSRC) at workshop in Graz. Its aim is to evaluate how well can contemporary methods be used for recognition of speakers in various environments; the participants in the competition were tasked to recognise speakers in the audio track of certain recordings. The VoxCeleb database contains several hundreds of thousands of videos including several thousand recordings of celebrities; the videos range from professionally edited recordings to informal videos containing laughter or noise in the background.
