The IDLAB VoxCeleb Speaker Recognition Challenge 2020 System Description

10/23/2020 ∙ by Jenthe Thienpondt, et al. ∙ 0

In this technical report we describe the IDLAB top-scoring submissions for the VoxCeleb Speaker Recognition Challenge 2020 (VoxSRC-20) in the supervised and unsupervised speaker verification tracks. For the supervised verification tracks we trained 6 state-of-the-art ECAPA-TDNN systems and 4 Resnet34 based systems with architectural variations. On all models we apply a large margin fine-tuning strategy, which enables the training procedure to use higher margin penalties by using longer training utterances. In addition, we use quality-aware score calibration which introduces quality metrics in the calibration system to generate more consistent scores across varying levels of utterance conditions. A fusion of all systems with both enhancements applied led to the first place on the open and closed supervised verification tracks. The unsupervised system is trained through contrastive learning. Subsequent pseudo-label generation by iterative clustering of the training embeddings allows the use of supervised techniques. This procedure led to the winning submission on the unsupervised track, and its performance is closing in on supervised training.
