audio signal processing

We introduce a novel dataset of bee piping audio signals which was built by collecting 44 different recordings which were published by various beekeepers on the YouTube platform.
Each recording has a duration varying from 2 to 13 seconds and is annotated according to the beekeeper comment respectively as Tooting or Quacking.


Speech detection systems are known as a type of audio classifier systems which are used to recognize, detect or mark parts of audio signal including human speech. Here, a novel robust feature named Long-Term Spectral Pseudo-Entropy (LTSPE) is proposed to detect speech and its purpose is to improve performance in combination with other features, increase accuracy and to have acceptable performance. Experimental results show that if LTSPE is combined with other features, performance of the detector is improved.
