This paper addresses the noisy label issue in audio event detection (AED) by refining strong labels as sequential labels with inaccurate timestamps removed. In AED, strong labels contain the occurrence of a specific event and its timestamps corresponding to the start and end of the event in an audio clip. The timestamps depend on subjectivity of each annotator, and their label noise is inevitable. Contrary to the strong labels, weak labels indicate only the occurrence of a specific event. They…

Evaluation on a subset of Audio Set shows that CTL closes a third of the gap between presence/ absence labeling and strong labeling, demonstrating the usefulness of the extra temporal information in sequential labeling.
Large-Scale Weakly Labeled Semi-Supervised Sound Event Detection in Domestic Environments
This paper presents DCASE 2018 task 4.0, which evaluates systems for the large-scale detection of sound events using weakly labeled data (without time boundaries) and explores the possibility to exploit a large amount of unbalanced and unlabeled training data together with a small weakly labeling training set to improve system performance.
