Speech Title: Intelligent Acoustic Systems: Classifying Environments from the Sounds
Abstract: The neural networks using a combination of multiple Gated Recurrent Units (GRUs) layers in the Neural Network enhance ASC's accuracy. Due to the advantage of time sequence modelling, the GRUs can perform better class-based discrimination and mapping features. The results on the TUT Acoustic Scenes evaluation dataset demonstrates that the proposed model performs better in ASC than Long short-term memory layer. The average class-wise accuracy has shown improvement with the proposed method.
