Automatic classification of sound commands is becoming increasingly important, especially for mobile and embedded devices. Many of these devices contain both cameras and microphones, and companies that develop them would like to use the same technology for both of these classification tasks. One way of achieving this is to represent sound commands as images, and use convolutional neural networks when classifying images as well as sounds. In this paper we consider several approaches to the problem of sound classification that we applied in TensorFlow Speech Recognition Challenge organized by Google Brain team on the Kaggle platform. Here we show different representation of sounds (Wave frames, Spectrograms, Mel-Spectrograms, MFCCs) and apply several 1D and 2D convolutional neural networks in order to get the best performance. Our experiments show that we found appropriate sound representation and corresponding convolutional neural networks. As a result we achieved good classification accuracy that allowed us to finish the challenge on 8-th place among 1315 teams.
