In this paper, we presents a low-complexity deep learning frameworks for acoustic scene classification (ASC). The proposed framework can be separated into three main steps: Front-end spectrogram extraction, back-end classification, and late fusion of predicted probabilities. First, we use Mel filter, Gammatone filter and Constant Q Transfrom (CQT) to transform raw audio signal into spectrograms, where both frequency and temporal features are presented. Three spectrograms are then fed into three

Finally, a late fusion of three predicted probabilities obtained from three CNNs is conducted to achieve the final classification result. To reduce the complexity of our proposed CNN network, we apply two model compression techniques: model restriction and decomposed convolution. Our extensive experiments, which are conducted on DCASE 2021 (IEEE AASP Challenge on Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events) Task 1A development dataset, achieve a low-complexity CNN based framework with 128 KB trainable parameters and the best classification accuracy of 66.7%, improving DCASE baseline by 19.0%
