Unimodal late fusion for NIST i-vector challenge on speaker detection

Ali, H., D'Avila Garcez, A.S., Tran, S.N. , Zhou, X. & Iqbal, K. (2014). Unimodal late fusion for NIST i-vector challenge on speaker detection. Electronics Letters, 50(15), pp. 1098-1100. doi: 10.1049/el.2014.1207


Speaker detection is a very interesting machine learning task for which the latest i-vector challenge has been coordinated by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). A simple late fusion approach for the speaker detection task on the i-vector challenge is presented. The approach is based on the late fusion of scores from the cosine distance method (the baseline) and the scores obtained from linear discriminant analysis. The results show that by adapting the simple late fusion approach, the framework can outperform the baseline score for the decision cost function on the NIST i-vector machine learning challenge.
