This paper proposes a system that combines the power of generative Gaussian mixture models (GMM) and discriminative support vector machines (SVM) in a speaker identification task. The classification methods are different and they also exhibit uncorrelated errors and this is used to improve performance of the speaker identification system. Whereas GMM needs more data to perform adequately and is computationally inexpensive, SVM on the other hand can do well with less data and is computationally… CONTINUE READING
