Models Overview

The DeepTone™ SDK comes with a set of different models. Each model is optimized to give insights on a certain voice property.


E.g. the Gender model predicts the gender of voice in a given audio snippet.

Integrated speech- and silence-detector

Finding voice properties only works if there is a voice to classify in a given audio snippet. This is why all the models that give insights on voice are combined with our Volume and Speech models.

Based on the output of the Volume model, the audio can be classified as Silence. If audio was detected, the Speech model will categorize it into one of three categories:

  • Speech
  • Music
  • Other

Currently, we consider everything that is neither speech nor music to be "other". We will be able to categorize audio into a wider range of categories with our HumanSounds model (coming soon ...).

Model output

Each of our classifier models will return an iterable that contains a time-series of predictions. Each element of the time-series contains the following information:

  • Timestamp - in milliseconds
  • Confidence - float ∈ [0,1]
  • Model result - depends on the model that is used

Optionally a user can also request a summary and transitions components in addition to the time-series result when processing a file. Additionally, raw model results can be requested in which case they will be appended to the time-series. More information about those can be found in the file-processing section.

Receptive field

Each model has a different receptive field - the minimum amount of data it needs to process before it produces reliable results. This means that if you request a model to process data it can output results as often as desired (minimum every 64ms and a multiple of it) but the initial results might not be accurate since there was not enough data to math the receptive field. Also note that if you request your data to be processed by multiple models at the same time, each might start producing accurate results at different points in time, depending on their receptive fields.

Output period

All models can output predictions at best at every 64ms of audio data.

Detailed information on how to configure the properties of a model can be found in the Usage section. The following models are currently included in the DeepTone™ SDK:
