In recent years, we have been using biometric verification systems in various places such as daily life and businesses. However, it’s insufficient in hospital and food factory to introduction of the security system of the room access control. This is because they wear gloves, masks and hats in hospitals and factories, so they cannot verify faces or fingerprints. In this study, we propose a speaker verification system using HTM (Hierarchical Temporal Memory). We verify speaker and detection of unlearned speakers by experiments. In addition, we consider the use in hospitals and factories, and also evaluate it in a noisy environment. The evaluation values are Precision, Recall, and F-measure. The experimental results show that in the case of 10 learners, F-measure exceeded 0.6 in the classification of 2 classes of learners and non-learners.
