Have the dataset files been released?

Have anybody got the datasets files of LifeCLEF 2020 Bird-Monophone? I noted that in the rule of the challenge it mentioned that "raining and validation data will be released in early February."and “As soon as the data is released it will be available under the “Resources” tab”. However, today is February 27th and I still find nothing in the "Resources"tags. So I would like to ask if anyone have the same problem like this? Or is there anything wrong with my understanding. I will be appreciate if you could solute my problem.


we weren’t able to release the datasets yet, but we’re planning on doing so this week. First, the training data will be released so that groups can start to explore and establish a training workflow. The validation data will follow shortly after. We intend to withhold the test data a bit longer to avoid overfitting to the task. This year’s dataset will be a bit more streamlined and compact compared to previous editions to lower the entry threshold. Please let us know if you have any other questions regarding the data, AIcrowd does not notify us of new forum threads, so please also consider contacting us via email.

Thanks, Stefan

We released the training data consisting of ~70,000 audio files across 960 species on Feb. 20th. Please let us know if you have any questions or issues while downloading or processing the data.

Thank you for releasing the data, but it is not clear to me how to download the data. Going to the data section I see the forward to the reference section but there is nothing about downloading the data set in that section or any other place I am aware of.

Please advise.

Thank You,

Hi @houkal,

We are working with @kahst to make the dataset available soon.
It is ready but faced upload issue which is being resolved.


Thank you for releasing the data,we have noticed that.


So far, we only released data for the monophone task. If you click on this challenge and go to the resources tab, you should be able to see the different downloadable files. You may have to accept the rules first in order to see all files. Please let us know, if you have any further questions or issues.

Thanks, Stefan

I just released the validation audio and ground truth. Please take a look and let me know if you have any issues or questions.
