In this paper we present our work on Task 1 Acoustic Scene Classification and Task 3 Sound Event Detection in Real Life Recordings. Among our experiments we have low-level and high-level features, classifier optimization and other heuristics specific to each task. Our 14 performance for both tasks improved the baseline from DCASE: for Task 1 we achieved an overall accuracy of 78.9% compared to the baseline of 72.6% and for Task 3 we achieved a Segment-Based Error Rate of 0.76 compared to the baseline of 0.91'
