An effective global impostor selection method is proposed in this paper for discriminative Deep Belief Networks (DBN) in the context of a multi-session i-vector based speaker recognition. The proposed method is an iterative process in which in each iteration the whole impostor i-vector dataset is divided randomly into two subsets. The impostors in one subset which are closer to each impostor in another subset are selected and impostor frequencies are computed. At the end, those impostors with higher frequencies will be the global selected ones. They are then clustered and the centroids are considered as the final impostors for the DBN speaker models. The advantage of the proposed method is that in contrary to other similar approaches, only the background i-vector dataset is employed. The experimental results are performed on the NIST 2014 i-vector challenge dataset and it is shown that the proposed selection method improves the performance of the DBN-based system in terms of minDCF by 7% and the whole system outperforms the baseline in the challenge by more than 22% relative improvement.
