Clustering outdoor soundscapes using fuzzy ants

Abstract

A classification algorithm for environmental sound recordings or ldquosoundscapesrdquo is outlined. An ant clustering approach is proposed, in which the behavior of the ants is governed by fuzzy rules. These rules are optimized by a genetic algorithm specially designed in order to achieve the optimal set of homogeneous clusters. Soundscape similarity is… (More)
