Sound is the most important product of natural activities. Each sound has variations and uniqueness of its own. But separating them from the mixed sound environment is a difficult task. The present paper discusses the activities of the researches to identify and classify these sounds by using many techniques. Analysis of these help to motivate the researchers to find new ways and means for identification of each sound, which may help in various fields such as hearing impairment treatment…

ESC: Dataset for Environmental Sound Classification
TLDR
A new annotated collection of 2000 short clips comprising 50 classes of various common sound events, and an abundant unified compilation of 250000 unlabeled auditory excerpts extracted from recordings available through the Freesound project are presented.
Acoustic Scene Classification: Classifying environments from the sounds they produce
TLDR
An account of the state of the art in acoustic scene classification (ASC), the task of classifying environments from the sounds they produce, and a range of different algorithms submitted for a data challenge to provide a general and fair benchmark for ASC techniques.
Environmental Sound Recognition With Time–Frequency Audio Features
TLDR
An empirical feature analysis for audio environment characterization is performed and a matching pursuit algorithm is proposed to use to obtain effective time-frequency features to yield higher recognition accuracy for environmental sounds.
Automatic Recognition of Urban Sound Sources
The goal of the FDAI project is to create a general system that computes an efficient representation of the acoustic environment. More precisely, FDAI has to compute a noise disturbance indicator
A Dataset and Taxonomy for Urban Sound Research
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The proposed method is motivated from the image processing technique, local binary pattern (LBP), and works on a spectrogram which forms two-dimensional data like an image, and effectively incorporate the local statistics, mean and standard deviation on local pixels, to establish robust LBP.
Classifying soundtracks with audio texture features
TLDR
It is shown that the texture statistics perform as well as the best conventional statistics (based on MFCC covariance) and the relative contributions of the different statistics are examined, showing the importance of modulation spectra and cross-band envelope correlations.
Audio analysis for surveillance applications
TLDR
The proposed hybrid solution is capable of detecting new kinds of suspicious audio events that occur as outliers against a background of usual activity and adaptively learns a Gaussian mixture model to model the background sounds and updates the model incrementally as new audio data arrives.
An evaluation framework for event detection using a morphological model of acoustic scenes
TLDR
A model of environmental acoustic scenes which adopts a morphological approach by ab-stracting temporal structures of acoustic scenes is introduced, able to explicitly control key morphological aspects of the acoustic scene and isolate their impact on the performance of the system under evaluation.
Chime-home: A dataset for sound source recognition in a domestic environment
TLDR
The annotation approach associates each 4-second excerpt from the audio recordings with multiple labels, based on a set of 7 labels associated with sound sources in the acoustic environment, to obtain a representation of `ground truth' in annotations.
