Abstract

Support vector machines are evaluated on speaker verification and speaker identification tasks. We compare the polynomial kernel, the Fisher kernel, a likelihood ratio kernel and the pair hidden Markov model kernel with baseline systems based on a discriminative polynomial classifier and generative Gaussian mixture model classifiers. Simulations were carried out on the YOHO database and some promising results were obtained.
