In this paper, we describe a general technique for optimizing the relative weights of feature sets in a support vector machine (SVM) and show how it can be applied to the field of speaker recognition. Our training procedure uses an objective function that maps the relative weights of the feature sets directly to a classification metric (e.g. equal-error(More)
This paper describes ICSI's 2005 speaker recognition system, which was one of the top performing systems in the NIST 2005 speaker recognition evaluation. The system is a combination of four sub-systems: 1) a keyword conditional HMM system, 2) an SVM-based lattice phone n-gram system, 3) a sequential nonparametric system, and 4) a traditional cepstral GMM(More)
