Abstract

In this paper, we present a brief history and a "longitudinal study" of all important milestone modelling techniques used in text independent speaker recognition since Brno University of Technology (BUT) first participated in the NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE) in 2006-GMM MAP, GMM MAP with eigen-channel adaptation, Joint Factor Analysis, i-vector and DNN embedding (x-vector). To emphasize the historical context, the techniques are evaluated on all NIST SRE sets since 2004 on a time-machine principle, i.e. a system is always trained using all data available up till the year of evaluation. Moreover, as user-contributed audiovisual content dominates nowadays Internet, we representatively include the Speakers In The Wild (SITW) and VOiCES challenge datasets in the evaluation of our systems. Not only we present a comparison of the modelling techniques, but we also show the effect of sampling frequency.
