Privacy-Preserving Speech Representation Learning using Vector Quantization

no code implementations15 Mar 2022 Pierre Champion, Denis Jouvet, Anthony Larcher

With the popularity of virtual assistants (e. g., Siri, Alexa), the use of speech recognition is now becoming more and more widespread. However, speech signals contain a lot of sensitive information, such as the speaker's identity, which raises privacy concerns. The presented experiments show that the representations extracted by the deep layers of speech recognition networks contain speaker information. This paper aims to produce an anonymous representation while preserving speech recognition performance. To this end, we propose to use vector quantization to constrain the representation space and induce the network to suppress the speaker identity. The choice of the quantization dictionary size allows to configure the trade-off between utility (speech recognition) and privacy (speaker identity concealment).

Evaluating X-vector-based Speaker Anonymization under White-box Assessment

no code implementations24 Sep 2021 Pierre Champion, Denis Jouvet, Anthony Larcher

In the scenario of the Voice Privacy challenge, anonymization is achieved by converting all utterances from a source speaker to match the same target identity; this identity being randomly selected.

A Study of F0 Modification for X-Vector Based Speech Pseudonymization Across Gender

no code implementations21 Jan 2021 Pierre Champion, Denis Jouvet, Anthony Larcher

Speech pseudonymization aims at altering a speech signal to map the identifiable personal characteristics of a given speaker to another identity.

End-to-end anti-spoofing with RawNet2

1 code implementation2 Nov 2020 Hemlata Tak, Jose Patino, Massimiliano Todisco, Andreas Nautsch, Nicholas Evans, Anthony Larcher

Spoofing countermeasures aim to protect automatic speaker verification systems from attempts to manipulate their reliability with the use of spoofed speech signals.
