Abstract: Acoustic Scene Classification (ASC) and Sound Event Detection (SED) are two separate tasks in the field of computational sound scene analysis. In this work, we present a new dataset with both sound scene and sound event labels and use this to demonstrate a novel method for jointly classifying sound scenes and recognizing sound events.
We show that by taking a joint approach, learning is more efficient and whilst improvements are still needed for sound event detection, SED results are robust in a dataset where the sample distribution is skewed towards sound scenes.
