Abstract

Spoken document retrieval (SDR) has become a prominently required application since unprecedented volumes of multimedia data along with speech have become available in our daily life. As far as we are aware, there has been relatively less work in launching unsupervised paragraph embedding methods and investigating the effectiveness of these methods on the SDR task. This paper first presents a novel paragraph embedding method, named the essence vector (EV) model, which aims at inferring a representation for a given paragraph by encapsulating the most representative information from the paragraph and excluding the general background information at the same time. On top of the EV model, we develop three query language modeling mechanisms to improve the retrieval performance. A series of empirical SDR experiments conducted on two benchmark collections demonstrate the good efficacy of the proposed framework, compared to several existing strong baseline systems.
