This paper describes the development of the Cambridge University RT-04 diarisation system, including details of the new segmentation and clustering components. The final system gives a diarisation error rate of 23.9% on the RT-04 evaluation data, a 34% relative improvement over the RT-03s evaluation system. A further reduction down to 18.1% is shown to be possible when using the segmentation algorithm alone.

If you have difficulty viewing files that end '.gz', which are gzip compressed, then you may be able to find tools to uncompress them at the gzip web site.

If you have difficulty viewing files that are in PostScript, (ending '.ps' or '.ps.gz'), then you may be able to find tools to view them at the gsview web site.

We have attempted to provide automatically generated PDF copies of documents for which only PostScript versions have previously been available. These are clearly marked in the database - due to the nature of the automatic conversion process, they are likely to be badly aliased when viewed at default resolution on screen by acroread.
