Speaker Verification

Medical Science

discrete fourier transform
Discrete Fourier Transform
  • N2 complex multiplications
  • (N)(N-1) complex additions
  • ~ 2N2 additions and multiplications
fast fourier transform
Fast Fourier Transform
  • Early 1960’s
  • John W. Tukey and James W Cooley
  • An algorithm for the machine calculation of complex Fourier series
  • Runge and König
  • Radix - 2 algorithm
the radix 2 algorithm
The Radix-2 Algorithm

~ 2N2 additions and multiplications for DFT, Vs. N2/2 for FFT

the radix 4 algorithm
The Radix-4 Algorithm
  • Base 4 i.e. N = 4x
  • More complex but less computation power utilized
  • The Radix-4 algorithm consists of v steps (log(N)/log(4))
  • Each step involves N/4 number of butterflies
  • 3*v*N/4 = (3N/8)log2N number of complex multiplications
  • (3N/2)log2N complex additions
  • Radix-2 Vs. Radix-4:
    • 25% reduction of complex multiplications
    • Complex additions will increase by 50%
  • Field Programmable Gate Array
  • For fast time to market hardware implementation
  • Xilinx Virtex-E
  • PCB with a Xilinx Virtex-E 1000
complex fft
Complex FFT
  • Specification
    • Minimum: 16 complex samples
    • Maximum: 1024 complex samples
    • Typical: 16 or 64
  • Number of bits for the input signal
    • Minimum: 10 bits
    • Maximum: 16 bits
    • Typical: 12
bit length
Bit Length
  • Implementing in hardware
  • Multiplications
  • Nbits x Nbits = 2 Nbits
  • Minimize the phase and amplitude error
  • Realizable
  • Different types of bit lengths
  • Ease, Eale, Modelsim and Symplify
  • Virtex-E 2000 @ Fc = 55 MHz, Computation phase = 640 ns my FFT
  • Xilinx Virtex LogiCore block @ 110 MHz, Computation phase = 1.92 ms
  • LogiCore = Serial
  • My FFT = Parallel
  • Tested using a Logical Analyser, Hewlett Pacard HP16555D (2.0 M Samples, 110/500 MHz) and a Pattern Generator
  • As the Radix-4 FFT algorithm utilizes less complex multipliers than the Radix-2 FFT algorithm, the Radix-4 algorithm is preferable for hardware implementation.
  • A parallel programming approach seems to be the model when a real time system with high sampling rate is desired.
  • To reach an acceptable level of phase error, it is desirable to use 16 bits precision on the input signal and the phase factor

  • Hardware Parallel Port Extension and access
  • Results
  • Conclusion
technical function20
Technical Function
  • Background
    • It would be interesting to develop a Speaker Verification system/software in JAVA, since the JAVA language is said to be platform independent and would be interesting as a research language.
  • Task
    • To study, implement and evaluate a VQ (Vector Quantization) Speaker Verification system in JAVA, using MFCC’s (Mel Frequency Cepstral Coefficients).
  • Technical Function
    • A graphical software implementation which shall record speech from a person through a microphone, verify the person as true speaker or false speaker.
  • 1991 @ Sun Microsystems by James Gosling & Co
  • Address the problem of building software for network consumer devices
  • Survive transport across networks
  • Operate on any client
  • Safe to run
  • Capability to work on a wide range of platforms and CPU's
  • Virtual Machine
  • Applet and Application
  • Platform portability
speaker verification and speaker recognition23
Speaker Verification and Speaker Recognition
  • Accessing confidential information areas
  • Access to remote computers
  • Voice dialing
  • Banking by telephone
  • Telephone shopping
  • Database access services
  • Information services
  • Voice mail
  • PIN code for your ATM
vq speaker verification

Speech Feature Extraction

cepstral coefficients
Cepstral Coefficients
  • Power of the triangular filter = summarized
  • Log calculated
  • Convert them to time domain using the Discrete Cosine Transform (DCT)
  • Result is called the mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCC).
feature matching
Feature Matching
  • Dynamic Time Warping (DTW)
  • Hidden Markov Modeling (HMM)
  • Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM)
  • Vector Quantization (VQ)
    • High Accuracy
    • Interesting to implement
  • Threshold
  • Cohort Speakers
  • Ratio
  • Since Java is said to be platform independent, some experiments has been conducted that has showed this is not always the case. As soon as you would like to access the hardware through Java you will face problems that will make your software to become platform dependent.
  • It is interesting to note that all the algorithm developed for the speaker verification system is platform independent, except for those parts accessing the sound card of the users computer, and can easily be executed under both Microsoft Windows and Linux.
  • Testing, simulation and verification of the speaker verification program show a total error rate of four percent.
