Abstract : In this paper, a comprehensive exploration of noise robustness and noise compensation of ResNet and TDNN speaker recognition systems is presented. Firstly the robustness of the TDNN and ResNet in the presence of noise, reverberation, and both distortions is explored. Our experimental results show that in all cases the ResNet system is more robust than TDNN. After that, a noise compensation task is done with denoising autoencoder (DAE) over the x-vectors extracted from both systems. We explored two scenarios: 1) compensation of artificial noise with artificial data, 2) compensation of real noise with artificial data. The second case is the most desired scenario, because it makes noise compensation affordable without having real data to train denoising techniques. The experimental results show that in the first scenario noise compensation gives significant improvement with TDNN while this improvement in Resnet is not significant. In the second scenario, we achieved 15% improvement of EER over VoiCes Eval challenge in both TDNN and ResNet systems. In most cases the performance of ResNet without compensation is superior to TDNN with noise compensation.
