    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;Clotho is a novel audio captioning dataset, consisting of&amp;nbsp;4981 audio samples, and each audio sample has five captions (a total of&amp;nbsp;24 905 captions).&amp;nbsp;Audio samples are of 15 to 30 s duration and captions are eight to 20 words long.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;Clotho is thoroughly described in our paper:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;em&gt;K. Drossos, S. Lipping and T. Virtanen, &amp;quot;Clotho: an Audio Captioning Dataset,&amp;quot; IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), Barcelona, Spain, 2020, pp. 736-740, doi: 10.1109/ICASSP40776.2020.9052990.&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;available online at:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.09387"&gt;https://arxiv.org/abs/1910.09387&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;and at:&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9052990"&gt;https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/9052990&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;If you use Clotho, please cite our paper.&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;To use the dataset, you can use our code at:&lt;/strong&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;a href="https://github.com/audio-captioning/clotho-dataset"&gt;https://github.com/audio-captioning/clotho-dataset&lt;/a&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;These are the files for the development and evaluation splits of Clotho dataset.&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;== Usage ==&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;To use the dataset you have to:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ol&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Download the audio files:&amp;nbsp;clotho_audio_development.7z and&amp;nbsp;clotho_audio_evalution.7z&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Download the files with the captions:&amp;nbsp;clotho_captions_development.csv and&amp;nbsp;clotho_captions_evaluation.csv&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Download the files with the associated metadata:&amp;nbsp;clotho_metadata_development.csv and&amp;nbsp;clotho_metadata_evaluation.csv&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Extract the audio files&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Then you can use each audio file with its corresponding captions&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ol&gt;

&lt;p&gt;--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;== License&amp;nbsp;==&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The audio files in the archives:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_audio_development.7z and&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_audio_evalution.7z&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;and the associated meta-data in the CSV files:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_metadata_development.csv&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_metadata_evaluation.csv&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;are under the corresponding licences (&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;mostly CreativeCommons with attribution&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;) of Freesound [1] platform, mentioned explicitly in the CSV files for each of the audio files. That is, each audio file in the 7z archives is listed in the CSV files with the meta-data. The meta-data for each file are:&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;File name&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Keywords&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;URL for the original audio file&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Start and ending samples for the excerpt that is used in the Clotho dataset&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Uploader/user in the Freesound platform&amp;nbsp;(manufacturer)&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;Link to the licence of the file&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The captions in the files:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;ul&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_captions_development.csv&lt;/li&gt;
	&lt;li&gt;clotho_captions_evaluation.csv&lt;/li&gt;
&lt;/ul&gt;

&lt;p&gt;are under the Tampere University licence, described in the LICENCE file (&lt;strong&gt;&lt;em&gt;mainly a non-commercial with attribution licence&lt;/em&gt;&lt;/strong&gt;).&amp;nbsp;&lt;/p&gt;
