This paper presents a new method for Long Short-Term Memory Recurrent Neural Network (LSTM) based speech overlap detection. To this end, speech overlap data is created artificially by mixing large amounts of speech utterances. Our elaborate training strategies and presented network structures demonstrate performance surpassing the considered state-of-the-art overlap detectors. Thereby we target the full ternary task of non-speech, speech, and overlap detection. Furthermore, speakers' gender is recognised, as the first successful combination of this kind within one model.
