DNC: Dataset for Noise Classification

Rafael, Zequeira Jiménez

The DNC dataset contains 4377 environmental background noise recordings labeled according to the type of noise. The recordings are approximately equally balanced between three main categories, i.e., *"mechanic"*, *"melodic"*, and *"quiet"*. These noise categories were selected as we found in a previous study that these are the background noises that can distract users in crowdsourcing when performing tasks. The recordings were collected through the audio-web API employing different Windows and Mac computers.
