This publication contains the 2000 NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation
Corpus, Linguistic Data Consortium (LDC) catalog number LDC2001S97 and ISBN
1-58563-192-2. The 2000 NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation is part of an
ongoing series of yearly 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.
This publication consists of 10,328 single channel SPHERE files encoded in
8-bit mulaw containing a total of approximately 4.31 Gbytes of data covering
148.9 hours of conversational telephone speech collected by LDC.
Supporting documentation for this evaluation may be found on the 2000 NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation
Please note that there was an optional additional corpus in the original
Evaluation. If you are interested in this "AHUMADA" corpus, please contact
Javier Ortega-Garcia of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid. Information on
how to contact Dr. Ortega-Garcia is available at 2000 NIST Resources.
