Audio Event Recognition for Automatic Acoustic Monitoring


Nowadays acoustic sensors collect huge amount of data on a regular basis to monitor various activities. This necessitates automated audio event recognition using acoustic data. In this talk, we will present effective methods for detecting and classifying different audio events. Interesting ideas and results will be shown for the proposed methods related to biological/bioacoustic signals.
