  • CN-Celeb, a large-scale Chinese celebrities dataset published by Center for Speech and Language Technology (CSLT) at Tsinghua University.


  • Current:Dong Wang, Yunqi Cai, Lantian Li, Yue Fan, Jiawen Kang
  • History:Ziya Zhou, Kaicheng Li, Haolin Chen, Sitong Cheng, Pengyuan Zhang


  • Collect audio data of 1,000 Chinese celebrities.
  • Automatically clip videos through a pipeline including face detection, face recognition, speaker validation and speaker diarization.
  • Create a benchmark database for speaker recognition community.

Basic Methods

  • Environments: Tensorflow, PyTorch, Keras, MxNet
  • Face detection and tracking: RetinaFace and ArcFace models.
  • Active speaker verification: SyncNet model.
  • Speaker diarization: UIS-RNN model.
  • Double check by speaker recognition: VGG model.
  • Input: pictures and videos of POIs (Persons of Interest).
  • Output: well-labelled videos of POIs (Persons of Interest).

Future Plans

  • Augment the database to 10,000 people.
  • Build a model between SyncNet and Speaker_Diarization based on LSTM, which can learn the relationship of them.


  • All the resources contained in the database are free for research institutes and individuals.
  • No commerical usage is permitted.
