Speaker Tracking in Broadcast Audio Material in the Framework of the Thisl Project

  title={Speaker Tracking in Broadcast Audio Material in the Framework of the Thisl Project},

In this paper, we present a first approach to build an automatic system for broadcast news speaker-based segmentation. Based on a Chop-and-Recluster method, this system is developed in the framework of the THISL project. A metric-based segmentation is used for the Chop procedure and different distances have been investigated. The Recluster procedure relies on a bottom-up clustering of segments obtained beforehand and represented by non-parametricmodels. Various hierarchical clustering schemes… CONTINUE READING
