In this work we introduce ARCHEO; a dataset for audio event recognition consisting of audio clips collected from areas of touristic interest. ARCHEO audio samples can be divided into two types based on the way they were collected. The first type is comprised of a large pool of field recordings obtained through field trips in touristic areas near the center of Athens, Greece. The second type consists of a smaller pool of audio clips extracted from YouTube videos recorded at popular touristic…

Athens Urban Soundscape (ATHUS): A Dataset for Urban Soundscape Quality Recognition
The goal of this paper is to provide to machine learning engineers, working on audio analytics, a first step towards the automatic recognition of soundscape quality in urban spaces, which could lead to powerful assessment tools in the hands of policy makers with regards to noise pollution and sustainable urban living.
Recognition of Urban Sound Events Using Deep Context-Aware Feature Extractors and Handcrafted Features
The main contribution of this work is the demonstration that transferring audio contextual knowledge using CNNs as feature extractors can significantly improve the performance of the audio classifier, without need for CNN training.
Audio Set: An ontology and human-labeled dataset for audio events
The creation of Audio Set is described, a large-scale dataset of manually-annotated audio events that endeavors to bridge the gap in data availability between image and audio research and substantially stimulate the development of high-performance audio event recognizers.
A saliency-based approach to audio event detection and summarization
This paper explores the potential of a modulation model for the detection of perceptually important audio events based on saliency models, along with various fusion schemes for their combination, including linear, adaptive and nonlinear methods.
A Dataset and Taxonomy for Urban Sound Research
A taxonomy of urban sounds and a new dataset, UrbanSound, containing 27 hours of audio with 18.5 hours of annotated sound event occurrences across 10 sound classes are presented.
Xenia: A context aware tour recommendation system based on social network metadata information
Xenia is presented, a context-aware platform aiming to construct travel routes that adhere to the aforementioned limitations by modeling and solving the tour planning dilemma through the Orienteering Problem (OP).
pyAudioAnalysis: An Open-Source Python Library for Audio Signal Analysis
Audio information plays a rather important role in the increasing digital content that is available today, resulting in a need for methodologies that automatically analyze such content: audio event
The authors outline the challenges posed by a cognitive sensor system and how it can approach a more humanlike understanding of soundscape, such as through the detection of meaningful events, deciding what data to record, and in-field sensor placement.
Learning Sound Event Classifiers from Web Audio with Noisy Labels
Experiments suggest that training with large amounts of noisy data can outperform training with smaller amounts of carefully-labeled data, and it is shown that noise-robust loss functions can be effective in improving performance in presence of corrupted labels.
