English abstract:
In this paper, we propose a parallel Convolutional Neural Network
architecture for the task of classifying acoustic scenes and urban
sound scapes. A popular choice for input to a Convolutional Neu-
ral Network in audio classification problems are Mel-transformed
spectrograms. We, however, show in this paper that a Constant-
Q-transformed input improves results. Furthermore, we evaluated
critical parameters such as the number of necessary bands and filter
sizes in a Convolutional Neural Network. These are non-trivial in
audio tasks due to the different semantics of the two axes of the in-
put data: time vs. frequency. Finally, we propose a parallel (graph-
based) neural network architecture which captures relevant audio
characteristics both in time and in frequency. Our approach shows a
10.7 % relative improvement of the baseline system of the DCASE
2016 Acoustic Scenes Classification task [1].
