Towards a better integration of written names for unsupervised speakers identification in videos

Abstract : Existing methods for unsupervised identification of speakers in TV broadcast usually rely on the output of a speaker diariza- tion module and try to name each cluster using names provided by another source of information: we call it "late naming". Hence, written names extracted from title blocks tend to lead to high precision identification, although they cannot correct er- rors made during the clustering step. In this paper, we extend our previous "late naming" ap- proach in two ways: "integrated naming" and "early naming". While "late naming" relies on a speaker diarization module op- timized for speaker diarization, "integrated naming" jointly op- timize speaker diarization and name propagation in terms of identification errors. "Early naming" modifies the speaker di- arization module by adding constraints preventing two clusters with different written names to be merged together. While "integrated naming" yields similar identification per- formance as "late naming" (with better precision), "early nam- ing" improves over this baseline both in terms of identification error rate and stability of the clustering stopping criterion.
