Machine Learning Algorithms for Automatic Classification of Marmoset Vocalizations
MetadataShow full item record
Automatic classification of vocalization type could potentially become a useful tool for acoustic the monitoring of captive colonies of highly vocal primates. However, for classification to be useful in practice, a reliable algorithm that can be successfully trained on small datasets is necessary. In this work, we consider seven different classification algorithms with the goal of finding a robust classifier that can be successfully trained on small datasets. We found good classification performance (accuracy > 0.83 and F-1-score > 0.84) using the Optimum Path Forest classifier. Dataset and algorithms are made publicly available.
