Table 11 Top-10 positive distractor events for speech (event labels related to false positive decisions of the network about the “Speech” class)

From: Exploring convolutional, recurrent, and hybrid deep neural networks for speech and music detection in a large audio dataset

Event Event ID Ratio \(d^{+}_{sp}\)
Crowd /m/03qtwd 76/94 0.521
Insect /m/03vt0 67/111 0.411

  1. \(d^{+}_{sp}\) score (Eq. 13) is used to rank the events. The ratio column shows the number of false positives for speech where the distractor event label is found (numerator) and the number of non-speech segments that contain the distractor event (denominator)
