Recognition of Emotional Vocalizations of Canine
We analyse a possibility of recognizing main emotional canine vocalizations. We collected a dataset of sounds produced by German Shepherd dogs and have analysed four emotional vocalizations attributed to dogs by human experts (Angry, Crying, Happy and Lonely). We suggest using cochleagram, which is a time-frequency representation of the sound signal based on the decomposition of a signal into different frequencies that are naturally selected by a human ear. The classification framework includes the generation of 50 audio features, feature ranking for frequency selection using several feature selection methods, class encoding using error-correcting Bose–Chaudhuri–Hocquenghem (BCH) code and classification using bagged decision trees. The results show that the acoustic features derived from multi-band filtering used in the production of cochleagrams can be used to recognize three dog emotional vocalizations of angry, lonely, and crying.
