ABSTRACT

Gaussian Mixture Models (GMMs) are the most widely used technique for voice modeling in automatic speaker recognition systems. In this paper, we introduce a variation of the traditional GMM approach that uses models with variable complexity (resolution). Termed Multi-resolution GMMs (MR-GMMs); this new approach yields more than a 50% reduction in the computational costs associated with proper speaker identification, as compared to the traditional GMM approach. We also explore the noise robustness of the new method by investigating MR-GMM performance under noisy audio conditions using a series of practical identification tests.
