Abstract: Spoken language recognition requires a series of signal processing steps and learning algorithms to model distinguishing characteristics of different languages. In this paper, we present a sparse discriminative feature learning framework for language recognition. We use sparse coding, an unsupervised method, to compute efficient representations for spectral features from a speech utterance while learning basis vectors for language models. Differentiated from existing approaches in sparse representation classification, we introduce a maximum a posteriori (MAP) adaptation scheme based on online learning that further optimizes the discriminative quality of sparse-coded speech features. We empirically validate the effectiveness of our approach using the NIST LRE 2015 dataset.
