NELS - Never-Ending Learner of Sounds.

Bhiksha Raj, Benjamin Elizalde, Anurag Kumar, Ankit Shah, Rohan Badlani

Sounds are essential to how humans perceive and interact with the world and are captured in recordings and shared on the Internet on a minute-by-minute basis. These recordings, which are predominantly videos, constitute the largest archive of sounds we know. However, most of these recordings have undescribed content making necessary methods for automatic sound analysis, indexing and retrieval. These methods have to address multiple challenges, such as the relation between sounds and language, numerous and diverse sound classes, and large-scale evaluation. We propose a system that continuously learns from the web relations between sounds and language, improves sound recognition models over time and evaluates its learning competency in the large-scale without references. We introduce the Never-Ending Learner of Sounds (NELS), a project for continuously learning of sounds and their associated knowledge, available on line in nels.cs.cmu.edu
