Small footprint Text-Independent Speaker Verification for Embedded Systems

11/03/2020 ∙ by Julien Balian, et al. ∙ 0

Deep neural network approaches to speaker verification have proven successful, but typical computational requirements of State-Of-The-Art (SOTA) systems make them unsuited for embedded applications. In this work, we present a two-stage model architecture orders of magnitude smaller than common solutions (237.5K learning parameters, 11.5MFLOPS) reaching a competitive result of 3.31 verification test set. We demonstrate the possibility of running our solution on small devices typical of IoT systems such as the Raspberry Pi 3B with a latency smaller than 200ms on a 5s long utterance. Additionally, we evaluate our model on the acoustically challenging VOiCES corpus. We report a limited increase in EER of 2.6 percentage points with respect to the best scoring model of the 2019 VOiCES from a Distance Challenge, against a reduction of 25.6 times in the number of learning parameters.
