Firstly thank you for organising the competition, anything looking to progress the state of audio ML is fantastic.
Firstly, I was wondering if there were any good resources to get started in the field of generic audio embeddings. I’ve come across the OpenL3 and PANNs repos, but haven’t found a good paper comparing SOTA embeddings for many tasks.
Secondly, I believe the first round had already completed (and I’ll miss the August round too). Is it possible to make the leaderboard public? Given the limited opportunity to test performance (compared to Kaggle / competition platforms) it would be good to know I’m competitive on the open tasks before submitting.
Thanks in advance!
