Multi-branch convolutional neural network architecture has raised lots of attention in speaker verification since the aggregation of multiple parallel branches can significantly improve performance. However, this design is not efficient enough during the inference time due to the increase of model parameters and extra operations. In this paper, we present a new multi-branch network architecture RepSPKNet that uses a re-parameterization technique. With this technique, our backbone model contains…

TMS: A Temporal Multi-scale Backbone Design for Speaker Embedding
This paper proposes an effective temporal multi-scale (TMS) model where multi- scale branches could be efficiently designed in a speaker embedding network almost without increasing computational costs and develops a systemic reparameterization method to convert the multi-branch network topology into a single-path-based topology in order to increase inference speed.


Serialized Multi-Layer Multi-Head Attention for Neural Speaker Embedding
The proposed serialized multi-layer multi-head attention is designed to aggregate and propagate attentive statistics from one layer to the next in a serialized manner and outperforms other baseline methods by 9.7% in EER and 8.1% in DCF10−2.
X-Vectors: Robust DNN Embeddings for Speaker Recognition
This paper uses data augmentation, consisting of added noise and reverberation, as an inexpensive method to multiply the amount of training data and improve robustness of deep neural network embeddings for speaker recognition.

A very large-scale audio-visual speaker recognition dataset collected from open-source media is introduced and Convolutional Neural Network models and training strategies that can effectively recognise identities from voice under various conditions are developed and compared.
A study on data augmentation of reverberant speech for robust speech recognition
It is found that the performance gap between using simulated and real RIRs can be eliminated when point-source noises are added, and the trained acoustic models not only perform well in the distant- talking scenario but also provide better results in the close-talking scenario.
Front-End Factor Analysis for Speaker Verification
An extension of the previous work which proposes a new speaker representation for speaker verification, a new low-dimensional speaker- and channel-dependent space is defined using a simple factor analysis, named the total variability space because it models both speaker and channel variabilities.
