Urban Sound Classification with Neural Networks in Tensorflow

Urban Sound Classification with #NeuralNetworks in Tensorflow #KDN

  • In this blog post, we will learn techniques to classify urban sounds into categories using machine learning.
  • Today, we will first see what features can be extracted from sound data and how easy it is to extract such features in Python using open source library called Librosa.
  • Fortunately, some researchers published urban sound dataset.
  • It contains 8,732 labelled sound clips (4 seconds each) from ten classes: air conditioner, car horn, children playing, dog bark, drilling, engine idling, gunshot, jackhammer, siren, and street music.
  • In this dataset, the sound files are in .


This post discuss techniques of feature extraction from sound in Python using open source library Librosa and implements a Neural Network in Tensorflow to categories urban sounds, including car horns, children playing, dogs bark, and more.
