Announcing the Bird Audio Detection Challenge

Dear all,

On behalf of the organising committee and the IEEE AASP TC,* we invite you to consider the first Bird Audio Detection Challenge:

Detecting bird sounds in audio is an important basic task in various applications. The current generation of software tools require manual work from the user: to choose the algorithm, to set the settings, and to post-process the results. This is holding bioacoustics back in embracing its "big data" era: let’s make this better!

We look forward to participation from students, researchers and developers. We have prizes of £500 and €500 for the best submissions.

Please forward this to anyone who may be interested. This is a cross-disciplinary challenge, and to solve it we need to reach people in many different subject areas.

Best wishes
Dan Stowell
