This paper presents a system for acoustic event detection in recordings from real life environments. The events are modeled using a network of hidden Markov models; their size and topology is chosen based on a study of isolated events recognition. We also studied the effect of ambient background noise on event classification performance. On real life recordings, we tested recognition of isolated sound events and event detection. For event detection, the system performs recognition and temporal…

Sound learning–based event detection for acoustic surveillance sensors
TLDR
In event detection experiments performed in an outdoor environment, the proposed approach outperformed conventional approaches in the real-time detection of acoustic events.
A Bag-of-Features approach to acoustic event detection
TLDR
A novel approach for classifying acoustic events that is based on a Bag-of-Features approach is proposed, whereMel and gammatone frequency cepstral coefficients that originate from psychoacoustic models are used as input features for the Bag- of representation.
Detection, classification and localization of acoustic events in the presence of background noise for acoustic surveillance of hazardous situations
TLDR
It is found that the engineered algorithms provide a sufficient robustness in moderately intense noise in order to be applied to practical audio-visual surveillance systems.
Context-dependent sound event detection
TLDR
The two-step approach was found to improve the results substantially compared to the context-independent baseline system, and the detection accuracy can be almost doubled by using the proposed context-dependent event detection.
Improving event detection for audio surveillance using Gabor filterbank features
TLDR
This work proposes to use Gabor filterbank features to detect target events in different noisy background scenes, which capture spectro-temporal modulation frequencies in the signal, which makes them suited for the detection of non-stationary sound events.

This paper proposes an acoustic event detection framework for weakly supervised data which is labeled with only the existence of events and shows that the proposed model has a lower EER on the CHiME Home dataset than other neural network based models.
Eventness: Object Detection on Spectrograms for Temporal Localization of Audio Events
TLDR
The concept of Eventness for audio event detection is introduced, which can, in part, be thought of as an analogue to Objectness from computer vision, which has comparable results with a state-of-the-art baseline and is more robust on minority events.
