Age Group Classification with Speech and Metadata Multimodality Fusion

Denys Katerenchuk

Children comprise a significant proportion of TV viewers and it is worthwhile to customize the experience for them. However, identifying who is a child in the audience can be a challenging task. Identifying gender and age from audio commands is a well-studied problem but is still very challenging to get good accuracy when the utterances are typically only a couple of seconds long. We present initial studies of a novel method which combines utterances with user metadata. In particular, we develop an ensemble of different machine learning techniques on different subsets of data to improve child detection. Our initial results show a 9.2\% absolute improvement over the baseline, leading to a state-of-the-art performance.
