Today I read a paper titled “Sound Representation and Classification Benchmark for Domestic Robots”
The abstract is:
We address the problem of sound representation and classification and present results of a comparative study in the context of a domestic robotic scenario.
A dataset of sounds was recorded in realistic conditions (background noise, presence of several sound sources, reverberations, etc.) using the humanoid robot NAO.
An extended benchmark is carried out to test a variety of representations combined with several classifiers.
We provide results obtained with the annotated dataset and we assess the methods quantitatively on the basis of their classification scores, computation times and memory requirements.
The annotated dataset is publicly available at this https URL .
