Any ideas/solutions/helps on sound detection?

Hi everyone,

I'm asked to write a program functioning like this:

Given some sound recordings(recorded at street, might have noise or other unrelevant sound), some people have labelled out the CAR ENGINE SOUND in timestamps. I want to use these labelled recordings as training set to train a model, then given a new recording, I can use the model to auto label any CAR ENGINE SOUND timestamps in it.

sounds like a pretty easy job, but I really don't have any experience on handling time series signal. Can someone give me some ideas ? I'd appreciate it very much!Embarassed

You might want to check out the field of machine learning. When you are given a labelled data set as a training set there are various tools available for building a model which you can then apply to a test set to make a prediction about the nature of the test set.

Coursera and other institutions offer basic free courses in machine learning. By following such a course you would get an appreciation of what tools might be appropriate in your specific case.
