The organizing team is currently developing a starter dev-kit which will include a starter model, several datasets, and evaluation code to get you up and running. We will be releasing these in about a month. The datasets for the main competition evaluation will remain secret.
While we are finalizing the start-kit, make sure to review the API specification for the model and get a head start on developing! HEAR 2021 NeurIPS Challenge · Neural Audio AI
