Current Speaker and Language Recognition technology activities:
- Speaker Recognition Evaluation series: (1996-) A biennial NIST evaluation of fully automated text-independent speaker recognition technology. View the 2012 NIST SRE report.
- Human Assisted Speaker Recognition Evaluation series: (2010- ) A biennial NIST evaluation of approaches that combine human expertise with automated speaker recognition technology.
- i-vector Machine Learning Challenge(s): (2013-) Challenges focused on the development of new methods for using i-vectors for speaker detection in the context of conversational telephone speech.
- Language Recognition Evaluation series: (1996-) A biennial NIST evaluation of fully automated language recognition technology. View the 2011 NIST LRE report.
- Speaker Recognition for Biometrics, Forensics and for Investigatory purposes: (2009- ) In collaboration with the FBI and other Government agencies, NIST contributes to a joint effort to conduct research supporting voice biometrics standards for the U.S. Government, and the development of Best Practices for Speaker Recognition technology use in support of the law.
