Modern approaches to speaker recognition (verification) operate in a space of "supervectors" created via concatenation of the mean vectors of a Gaussian mixture model (GMM) adapted from a universal background model (UBM). In this space, a number of approaches to model inter-class separability and nuisance attribute variability have been proposed. We develop a method for modeling the variability associated with each class (speaker) by using partial-least-squares -a latent variable modeling
more &raquo; ... que, which isolates the most informative subspace for each speaker. The method is tested on NIST SRE 2008 data and provides promising results. The method is shown to be noise-robust and to be able to efficiently learn the subspace corresponding to a speaker on training data consisting of multiple utterances.
