Abstract
In this paper we investigate the use of adversarial domain adaptation for addressing the problem of language mismatch between speaker recognition corpora. In the context of speaker verification, adversarial domain adaptation methods aim at minimizing certain divergences between the distribution that the utterance-level features follow (i.e. speaker embeddings) when drawn from source and target domains (i.e. languages), while preserving their capacity in recognizing speakers. Neural architectures for extracting utterancelevel representations enable us to apply adversarial adaptation methods in an end-to-end fashion and train the network jointly with the standard cross-entropy loss. We examine several configurations, such as the use of (pseudo-)labels on the target domain as well as domain labels in the feature extractor, and we demonstrate the effectiveness of our method on the challenging NIST SRE16 and SRE18 benchmarks.
