The MTG-UPF, through Freesound, and the Google Machine Perception Team, creators of AudioSet Ontology, joint efforts to create an open audio dataset and to organize a machine learning competition, efforts aimed to stimulate research in sound event recognition. The MTG-UPF has been awarded a Google Faculty Research Award to support this initiative.
The Freesound Datasets platform, developed by the MTG, is an open platform for the creation of audio collections labeled by people and based on Freesound. With the collaboration of the Google Machine Perception Team, we have created the first dataset, FSD, which is annotated using the AudioSet Ontology. In order to promote the use of FSD, we have created the Freesound General-Purpose Audio Tagging Challenge. In this challenge the participants are asked to build systems able to recognize over 40 different categories of everyday sounds (a small subset of FSD). This competition is hosted in Kaggle (a well-known platform for machine learning competitions) under the framework of the DCASE Challenge (an academic competition featuring tasks related to the computational analysis of sound events).
