A Dataset of Dynamic Reverberant Sound Scenes with Directional Interferers for Sound Event Localization and Detection
To investigate the individual and combined effects of ambient noise, interferers, and reverberation, the performance of the baseline on different versions of the dataset excluding or including combinations of these factors indicates that by far the most detrimental effects are caused by directional interferers.
The Convolutional Recurrent Neural Network (CRNN) is developed that jointly predicts the Sound Event Detection (SED) and Degree of Arrival (DOA) hence minimizing the overlapping problems.
