An Improved Deep Neural Network for Modeling Speaker Characteristics at Different Temporal Scales

01/14/2020 ∙ by Bin Gu, et al. ∙ 0

This paper presents an improved deep embedding learning method based on convolutional neural network (CNN) for text-independent speaker verification. Two improvements are proposed for x-vector embedding learning: (1) Multi-scale convolution (MSCNN) is adopted in frame-level layers to capture complementary speaker information in different receptive fields. (2) A Baum-Welch statistics attention (BWSA) mechanism is applied in pooling-layer, which can integrate more useful long-term speaker characteristics in the temporal pooling layer. Experiments are carried out on the NIST SRE16 evaluation set. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of MSCNN and show the proposed BWSA can further improve the performance of the DNN embedding system
