AB - Human-based speaker diarization experiments were carried out on a five-minute extract of a typical AMI corpus meeting to see how much variance there is in human reviews based on hearing only and to compare with state-of-the-art diarization systems on the same extract. There are three distinct experiments: (a) one with no prior information; (b) one with the ground truth speech activity detection (GT-SAD); and (c) one with the blank ground truth labels (GT-labels). The results show that most human reviews tend to be quite similar, albeit with some outliers, but the choice of GT-labels can make a dramatic difference to scored performance. Using the GT-SAD provides a big advantage and improves human review scores substantially, though small differences in the GT-SAD used can have a dramatic effect on results. The use of forgiveness collars is shown to be unhelpful. The results show that state-of-the-art systems can outperform the best human reviews when no prior information is provided. However, the best human reviews still outperform state-of-the-art systems when starting from the GT-SAD.
