Albayzin-RTVE 2024 Speaker Diarization and Identity Assignment Challenge

Speaker Diarization is a very important task for some speech technologies like Automatic Speech Recognition, Speaker Identification or Spoken Document Retrieval. This evaluation consists of segmenting broadcast audio documents according to different speakers and linking those segments which originate from the same speaker. No a priori knowledge is provided about the number or the identity of the speakers participating in the audio to be analyzed. This year an optional speaker identification step has been included in the evaluation. Given a closed set of characters the challenge will be to label the segments given by the speaker diarization step with the known character names.

The calendar for the Albayzín Speaker Diarization and Identity Assignment evaluation is:
