CN-Celeb: multi-genre speaker recognition

12/23/2020 ∙ by Lantian Li, et al. ∙ 0

Research on speaker recognition is extending to address the vulnerability in the wild conditions, among which genre mismatch is perhaps the most challenging, for instance, enrollment with reading speech while testing with conversational or singing audio. This mismatch leads to complex and composite inter-session variations, both intrinsic (i.e., speaking style, physiological status) and extrinsic (i.e., recording device, background noise). Unfortunately, the few existing multi-genre corpora are not only limited in size but are also recorded under controlled conditions, which cannot support conclusive research on the multi-genre problem. In this work, we firstly publish CN-Celeb, a large-scale multi-genre corpus that includes in-the-wild speech utterances of 3,000 speakers in 11 different genres. Secondly, using this dataset, we conduct a comprehensive study on the multi-genre phenomenon, in particular the impact of the multi-genre challenge on speaker recognition, and on how to utilize the valuable multi-genre data more efficiently.
