The 2019 NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE19) is the next in an ongoing series of speaker recognition evaluations conducted by NIST since 1996. The objectives of the evaluation series are (1) to explore promising new ideas in speaker recognition, (2) to support the development of advanced technology incorporating these ideas, and (3) to measure and calibrate the performance of the current state of technology. The evaluations are intended to be of interest to all researchers working on the general problem of text-independent speaker recognition. To this end, the evaluation is designed to focus on core technology issues and to be simple and accessible to those wishing to participate.
SRE19 will be organized in a similar manner to SRE18, focusing on speaker detection over conversational telephone speech (CTS) and audio from video (AfV), using speech and audio material extracted from Call My Net 2 (CMN2) as well as Video Annotation for Speech Technology (VAST) corpora. In addition to the conventional audio-only track, SRE19 will feature an audio-visual track involving automatic person detection on speech and video material extracted from amateur online videos.
Participation in SRE19 is open to all who find the evaluation of interest and are able to comply with the evaluation rules set forth in the evaluation plan. Participating teams must be represented at the post-evaluation workshop to be co-located with IEEE ASRU workshop in Sentosa, Singapore, on December 12-13, 2019.
