Disentangled speaker and nuisance attribute embedding for robust speaker verification

08/07/2020 ∙ by Woo Hyun Kang, et al. ∙ 0

Over the recent years, various deep learning-based embedding methods have been proposed and have shown impressive performance in speaker verification. However, as in most of the classical embedding techniques, the deep learning-based methods are known to suffer from severe performance degradation when dealing with speech samples with different conditions (e.g., recording devices, emotional states). In this paper, we propose a novel fully supervised training method for extracting a speaker embedding vector disentangled from the variability caused by the nuisance attributes. The proposed framework was compared with the conventional deep learning-based embedding methods using the RSR2015 and VoxCeleb1 dataset. Experimental results show that the proposed approach can extract speaker embeddings robust to channel and emotional variability.
