The focus of this work is to improve the speaker diarizationerror rate, and more specifically the speaker error rate. Weinvestigate two methods of improving the speaker error rate:modifying the minimum duration constraint and incorporatingnovel purification techniques. First, in the final step of thespeaker diarization algorithm we replace the minimum duration constraint with a simple smoothing algorithm, which averages the log-likelihoods for each of the hypothesized speakers.
