The goal of this paper is to learn robust speaker representation for bilingual speaking scenario. The majority of the world’s population speak at least two languages; however, most speaker recognition systems fail to recognise the same speaker when speaking in different languages.
Popular speaker recognition evaluation sets do not consider the bilingual scenario, making it difficult to analyse the effect of bilingual speakers on speaker recognition performance. In this paper, we publish a large-scale evaluation set named VoxCeleb1-B derived from VoxCeleb that considers bilingual scenarios.
We introduce an effective disentanglement learning strategy that combines adversarial and metric learning-based methods. This approach addresses the bilingual situation by disentangling language-related information from speaker representation while ensuring stable speaker representation learning. Our language disentangled learning method only uses language pseudo-labels without manual information.
