Speaker Recognition Evaluation 2012

The 2012 NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation (SRE12) is part of an ongoing series of evaluations conducted by NIST. These evaluations provide an important contribution to the direction of research efforts and the calibration of technical capabilities. They are intended to be of interest to all researchers working on the general problem of text independent speaker recognition. To this end the evaluation was designed to be simple, to focus on core technology issues, to be fully supported, and to be accessible.
