Efficient keyword spotting using time delay neural networks

by   Samuel Myer, et al.

This paper describes a novel method of live keyword spotting using a two-stage time delay neural network. The model is trained using transfer learning: initial training with phone targets from a large speech corpus is followed by training with keyword targets from a smaller data set. The accuracy of the system is evaluated on two separate tasks. The first is the freely available Google Speech Commands dataset. The second is an in-house task specifically developed for keyword spotting. The results show significant improvements in false accept and false reject rates in both clean and noisy environments when compared with previously known techniques. Furthermore, we investigate various techniques to reduce computation in terms of multiplications per second of audio. Compared to recently published work, the proposed system provides up to 89
