Sound event detection in synthetic domestic environments

Abstract : We present a comparative analysis of the performance of state-of-the-art sound event detection systems. In particular, we study the robustness of the systems to noise and signal degradation, which is known to impact model generalization. Our analysis is based on the results of task 4 of the DCASE 2019 challenge, where submitted systems were evaluated on, in addition to real-world recordings, a series of synthetic soundscapes that allow us to carefully control for different soundscape characteristics. Our results show that while overall systems exhibit significant improvements compared to previous work, they still suffer from biases that could prevent them from generalizing to real-world scenarios.
