Automatic Speaker Verification (ASV) systems are among the biometric systems used in security and telephone-based remote control applications. Recent years have witnessed an increasing trend in research on such systems. These systems usually use high dimension feature vectors and therefore involve high complexity. However, there is a general belief that many of the features used in such systems are irrelevant and redundant. So far, many methods for feature dimension reduction in these systems have been proposed, most of which are wrapper-based and thus computationally expensive since system performance is used for feature subset evaluation.
