All the necessary software tools are available as a single GitHub repository.
We recommend installing the software first and then following the instructions in the repositorys README for downloading and unpacking the data.
The data is available for download here.
On the download site you will see three data packages are available,
clarity_CEC2_core.v1_1.tgz[28 GB] - metadata and dev set
clarity_CEC2_train.v1_1.tgz[69 GB] - scenes for training systems
clarity_CEC2_hoairs.v1_0.tgz[144 GB] - impulse responses for generating extended training data
All participants will require the core data package. Participants using machine learning approaches will additionally require the train data package. Participants wishing to extend the training set by using our provided scene rendering tools will also require the high order ambisonic impulse responses (i.e., the hoairs package).
To unpack the data we recommend you follow the instructions in the Clarity Challenge GitHub repository.
If you previously downloaded
v1_0 of the core and train data, please replace your data with
v1_1: an error was found in the head rotations for the initial data release.
