Network World: Google AudioSet aims to make sounds, from roars to boings, searchable

Network World: Google AudioSet aims to make sounds, from roars to boings, searchable . “Google researchers have released a collection of 2 million-plus labeled audio snippets designed to spark innovation in the area of sound search. The company earlier this month published a paper titled “AudioSet: An ontology and human-labeled dataset for audio events” that it hopes will combine with image recognition to strengthen overall search and identification capabilities that could be used in a wide variety of machine learning applications, including the automation of video captions that include sound effects. Google began work on the project last year.”
