The intent here is to provide guidelines for actors in the technical and
economic chain, from algorithms to products, who are concerned with speaker recognition .
These actors are research scientists, development engineers, equipment manufacturers,
service providers and end users.
- Research scientists should investigate the basis of biometric identity verification.
This fundamental research will eventually suggest new approaches. They are also responsible
for the specification of methods and databases to evaluate these approaches.
Part of the research should be rather applied to demonstrate that fundamental results
will benefit society. Scientists should be well aware of new needs of our society
and should suggest solutions.
- Development engineers are in charge of the integration of algorithms on
real-time platforms. They should be well acquainted with results obtained under laboratory
conditions. They should interact with researchers to scale the implementation aspects
of algorithms. They usually work for equipment manufacturers.
- Equipment manufacturers need to select the best algorithms and
platforms to offer competitive systems. They must be well aware of market trends.
They should provide evidence and results of case studies to help predictive assessment.
They must claim results on public databases. They should offer demonstrations and
make systems available to facilitate evaluation.
- Service providers are responsible for products. They should compare alternative
technologies to solve problems. They must carefully design the ergonomy of the man-machine
interface and run field tests .
- End users will finally decide the success of applications.
