HomeBank Special Projects

HomeBank currently hosts two datasets from two projects that are based on HomeBank data. Both require HomeBank membership to access.

The Challenge dataset

This is the data that were used for the 2017 ComParE Challenge, Addressee Subchallenge. Although the official challenge is over, please feel welcome to try your hand at improving on the baseline model's performance. If you are able to do so, we'd like to hear from you! Please see the following paper for details:
