The evaluation sets are now released! Including our few-shot bioacoustic event detection: dcase.community/challenge2021/ Good luck to everyone who is working on ...

Very happy to have seen+heard my first black redstart in the Netherlands. A delightful & intriguing song - I've heard plenty in Germany before, none in the UK.

Call for submissions! Join the 3rd International Workshop on Vocal Interactivity in-and-between Humans, Animals and Robots (). Submit an abstract: vihar-2021.vihar.org/

Discovered tonight that the @lrb does NOT make good kindling. Not sure why. Too dense?

Nice piece of work: research from @_BTO has investigated the effect of artificial light at night on birds (via acoustic monitoring and some deep learning) bto.org/our-science/publicatio

Aha, a new strongly-annotated dataset of birdsong audio! (from Eastern USA) esajournals.onlinelibrary.wile (thanks @whybirdssing for the tip)

Someone pointed out this: github.com/FRESNA/powerplantma - looks good! Unfortunately it deliberately avoids handling wind+solar because it can't do name-matching on them. But perhaps a useful basis for future work

One thing common across projects: data "de-duplication" / dataset "conflation" algorithms. Most of us hand-roll a method for our own situation. Imagine a nice Python library to merge+deduplicate an arbitrary set of energy-system geodata...

Looking forward to taking part in the @openmod lightning talks about "open global datasets for energy system modeling" today at 15:00 CEST: forum.openmod.org/t/4rd-online

Leiden (NL) dawn chorus this morning - we heard: Jay, Wren, Chicken, Great spotted woodpecker, Mallard, Magpie, Great tit, Blue tit, Wood pigeon, Chiff chaff, Long-tailed tit, Chaffinch, Goose, Song thrush, Parakeet, Robin, Blackbird, Gull, Carrion crow, Greenfinch.

The dawn has now reached Japan. We're watching (remotely) "Cyberforest" who are conducting a birdsong census in a Japanese forest, as part of the @soundtent Reveil soundtent.org/reveil/

At the end of every deep learning seminar, someone will ask: "Did you try [this other GAN from arxiv six months ago]?"

At the Dutch seaside today, we heard SO many nightingales! Fascinating sound to hear close up. Here's a clip recorded using @warblr:

Everyone should join the Soundcamp Reveil this weekend soundtent.org/ -- a beautiful celebration of dawn chorus birdsong beamed from around the world, with added sonic art

Can open data help to fix the energy system's CO2 impact? I'm looking fwd to taking part in this set of lightning talks on 5th May - check out the list of topics: forum.openmod.org/t/4rd-online
