Abstract
The paper is on support vector machines and joint factor analysis. Several variants of joint factor analysis are tested.
Annotation
This article presents several techniques to combine between Support vector machines (SVM) and Joint Factor Analysis (JFA) model for speaker verification. In this combination, the SVMs are applied in different sources of information produced by the JFA. These informations are the Gaussian Mixture Model supervectors and speakers and Common factors. We found that the use of JFA factors gave the best results especially when within class covariance normalization method is applied in the speaker factors space in order to compensate for the channel effect. The new combination results are comparable to other classical JFA scoring techniques.
