A platform for the collaborative creation of open audio collections labeled by humans and based on Freesound content



Get started with our annotation tasks!







Explore, download and contribute to our datasets

The FSD is a large-scale, general-purpose dataset composed of Freesound content organised by the AudioSet Ontology

... more to come!



Our vision ...


Transparency

The datasets creation process should be as transparent
as possible since data science results heavily depend on it

Openness

Data should be released under open licenses to
facilitate its distribution and help reproducible research

Dynamism

Datasets should be dynamic in the sense that
they can evolve over time in quality and quantity

... and our plan!


Freesound content

We leverage Freesound (>360k sounds) as a
source of open audio content for creating datasets

Community-based

We rely on the community to sustainably crowdsource high-quality
sound annotations and to improve our platform workflows

The Freesound Datasets platform

Builds and maintains datasets following the outlined principles of
transparency, openness, dynamic character, and sustainability
