MARVEL at the DCASE 2022 Workshop

MARVEL was one of the sponsors of the Workshop on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events (DCASE) 2022.

MARVEL partner, TAU lead the organisation of Task 1 “Low-Complexity Acoustic Scene Classification” of the DCASE 2022 challenge that took place between 15 March and 1 July 2022. The goal of the task was to classify a test recording into one of the predefined ten acoustic scene classes. This targeted acoustic scene classification with devices with low computational and memory allowance, which imposes certain limits on the model complexity, such as the model’s number of parameters and the multiply-accumulate operations count. In addition to low complexity, the aim was generalization across a number of different devices. For this purpose, the task also used audio data recorded and simulated with a variety of devices.

MARVEL sponsored the DCASE Challenge task 1 and the results from the challenge were presented and discussed during the workshop that was held between November 3 and 4, 2022 in Nancy, France.

Approximately 100 people attended the workshop and more than 10 contacts were made with people showing more interest in MARVEL.
