This paper deals with random forest regression based acoustic event detection (AED) by combining acoustic features with bottleneck features (BN). The bottleneck features have a good reputation of being inherently discriminative in acoustic signal processing. To deal with the unstructured and complex real-world acoustic events, an acoustic event detection system is constructed using bottleneck features combined with acoustic features. Evaluations were carried out on the UPC-TALP and ITC-Irst databases which consist of highly variable acoustic events. Experimental results demonstrate the usefulness of the low-dimensional and discriminative bottleneck features with relative 5.33% and 5.51% decreases in error rates respectively.
