This article is about Score Normalization and System Combination for Improved Keyword Spotting (KWS).
We present two techniques that are shown to yield improved Key- word Spotting (KWS) performance when using the ATWV/MTWV performance measures: (i) score normalization, where the scores of different keywords become commensurate with each other and they more closely correspond to the probability of being correct than raw posteriors; and (ii) system combination, where the detections of multiple systems are merged together, and their scores are in- terpolated with weights which are optimized using MTWV as the maximization criterion. Both score normalization and system com- bination approaches show that significant gains in ATWV/MTWV can be obtained, sometimes on the order of 8-10 points (absolute), in five different languages. A variant of these methods resulted in the highest performance for the official surprise language evaluation for the IARPA-funded Babel project in April 2013.
