The QUT-NOISE Databases and Protocols

Overview

This distribution contains the QUT-NOISE database and the code required to create the QUT-NOISE-TIMIT database from the QUT-NOISE database and a locally installed copy of the TIMIT database. It also contains code to create the QUT-NOISE-SRE protocol on top of an existing speaker recognition evaluation database (such as NIST evaluations). Further information on the QUT-NOISE and QUT-NOISE-TIMIT databases is available in our paper:

Creating QUT-NOISE-TIMIT

Obtaining TIMIT

In order to construct the QUT-NOISE-TIMIT database from the QUT-NOISE data supplied here you will need to obtain a copy of the TIMIT database from the . If you just want to use the QUT-NOISE database, or you wish to combine it with different speech data, TIMIT is not required.

Creating QUT-NOISE-TIMIT

  • Once you have obtained TIMIT, download and install a copy of  and install it in your MATLABPATH.
  • Run matlab in the QUT-NOISE/code directory, and run the function: createQUTNOISETIMIT('/location/of/timit-cd/timit'). This will create the QUT-NOISE-TIMIT database in the QUT-NOISE/QUT-NOISE-TIMIT directory.
  • If you wish to verify that the QUT-NOISE-TIMIT database matches that evaluated in our original paper, please check that the md5sums (use md5sum on unix-based OSes) match those in the QUT-NOISE-TIMIT/md5sum.txt file.
  • Using the QUT-NOISE-SRE protocol
    • The code related to the QUT-NOISE-SRE protocol can be used in two ways:
      1. To create a collection of noisy audio files across the scenarios in the QUT-NOISE database at different noise levels, or,
      2. To recreate a list of file names based on the QUT-NOISE-SRE protocl produced by another researcher, having already done (1). This allows existing research to be reproduced without having to send large volumes of audio around.

    • These files can be recreated as follows (provided you have access to the NIST2008 SRE data): 

      Run matlab in the QUT-NOISE/code directory, and run the following functions:
