The goal of the NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE) series is to contribute to the direction of research efforts and the calibration of technical capabilities of text independent speaker recognition. The overarching objective of the evaluations has always been to drive the technology forward, to measure the state-of-the-art, and to find the most promising algorithmic approaches.
NIST has been coordinating Speaker Recognition Evaluations since 1996. Since then over 70 research sites have participated in our evaluations. Each year new researchers in industry and universities are encouraged to participate. Collaboration between universities and industries is also welcomed.
Each evaluation begins with the announcement of the official evaluation plan which clearly states the rules and tasks involved with the evaluation. The evaluation culminates with a follow-up workshop, where NIST reports the official results and researchers share in their findings. The current plan is to have an evaluation once every two years.
The next evaluation is currently planned for late 2018. Check back here for details.
