AN OPEN-SOURCE SPEAKER GENDER DETECTION FRAMEWORK FOR MONITORING GENDER EQUALITY

Abstract: 

This paper presents an approach based on acoustic analysis to describe gender equality in French audiovisual streams, through the estimation of male and female speaking time. Gender detection systems based on Gaussian Mixture Models, i-vectors and Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) were trained using an internal database of 2,284 French speakers and evaluated using REPERE challenge corpus. The CNN system obtained the best performance with a frame-level gender detection F-measure of 96.52 and a hourly women speaking time percentage error bellow 0.6%. It was considered reliable enough to realize large-scale gender equality descriptions. The proposed gender detection system has been packaged as an open-source framework.
