Neural Networks With Dilated Convolutions For Sound Event Recognition
MetadataShow full item record
Convolutional neural networks, most commonly deployed in image classification tasks,typically use square-shaped convolutional kernels, which are well suited for feature extraction fromtwo-dimensional data. This study explores the effect of utilizing spectrally aware dilated convolutionsspecialized for sound event recognition. By extending the base kernels in the time or the frequencydimension, the features extracted from the spectral audio representations should, in theory, bettercapture the temporal and timbral information of different sound events. The baseline neural networkmodel with squared kernels was compared against three models, which used an increasing dilationfactor in the subsequent convolutional layers. The three models were purposefully tuned to focustowards the frequency and time feature extraction. The results have shown that the models withdilated convolutions performed noticeably better in comparison with the baseline model.
