Frame-Level Audio Feature Extraction Using AdaBoost

  title={Frame-Level Audio Feature Extraction Using AdaBoost},
  author={Norman Casagrande and Douglas Eck and Bal{\'a}zs K{\'e}gl},
In this paper we adapt an AdaBoost-based image processing algorithm to the task of predicting whether an audio signal contains speech or music. We derive a frame-level discriminator that is both fast and accurate. Using a simple FFT and no built-in prior knowledge of signal structure we obtain an accuracy of 88% on frames sampled at 20ms intervals. When we smooth the output of the classifier with the output of the previous 40 frames our forecast rate rises to 93% on the Scheirer-Slaney… CONTINUE READING
