Voice biometrics

Our expertise in voice biometrics, an area of research aimed at identifying or authenticating a person's identity through its voice, is one of the most advanced in the world. CRIM has been taking part in competitions and technological evaluations in speech and speaker recognition since 1992.

In the course of our 2005, 2006, 2008 and 2010 participations in the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) Speaker Recognition Evaluation campaigns, our results ranked among the best in the word. The impact of our work on the community has been felt since our second year of participation by changes in the testing paradigm and the adoption of factorial analysis, i-vectors and probabilistic linear discriminant analysis by the most competitive sites. Since 2006, CRIM has ranked well under several NIST SRE evaluation conditions each year.
