    A speech signal is commonly corrupted by non-stationary interference in different environments. The interference distributes itself nonuniformly over the temporal regions of the signal. This makes certain segments more speech dominant and hence, “usable” for speech processing applications like speaker identification and speech recognition. The main part of this paper examines the det... View full abstract»

    This paper presents the main paradigms for speaker identification, and recent work on missing data methods to increase robustness. The feature extraction, speaker modeling and system classification are discussed. Evaluations of speaker identification performance subject to environmental noise are presented. While performance is impressive in clean speech conditions, there is rapid degradation with... View full abstract»

    Even though the subject of speaker verification has been investigated for several decades, numerous challenges and new opportunities in robust recognition techniques are still being explored. In this overview paper we first provide a brief introduction to statistical pattern recognition techniques that are commonly used for speaker verification. The second part of the paper presents traditional an... View full abstract»

    This tutorial presents an overview of the progression of spoken language identification (LID) systems and current developments. The introduction provides a background on automatic language identification systems using syntactic, morphological, and in particular, acoustic, phonetic, phonotactic and prosodic level information. Different frontend features that are used in LID systems are presented. S... View full abstract»
