Kagglethon 2 - Sound recognition

9-May 2019 - 17:30

This our 2nd gathering, out of 4 planned, in this Barrel.ai Kagglethon (earlier description below) before the final model submission and winner announcement on 19th of June. This is also the opportunity for new participants/teams to join the competition. We do expect that you have at least some ML modelling experience if you are to join the competition.

At this gathering, we meet to co-work on our kernel submissions and demo our kernels, for those who want.

Follow the current live score results on our privat leaderboard.

Barrel.ai Kagglethon competition description:

Can you tell the difference between a baby's laugh and the sound of a chainsaw? Do you think you can teach a computer to do the same?

If so, come join Barrel.ai in participating in the Freesound Audio Tagging 2019 competition (https://www.kaggle.com/c/freesound-audio-tagging-2019) on Kaggle.

Over the course of a series of meetups, we will divide into teams and work on our submissions together and exchange ideas.

We will also be running our own local competition in parallel with a grand prize of 5000 SEK provided by our sponsor, NordAxon, to the team with the best score on the final leaderboard.
