Summary: 
Acoustic Event Classification (AEC) poses difficult technical challenges as a result of the complexity in capturing and processing sound data. Of the various applicable approaches, Support Vector Machine (SVM) with Gaussian Mixture Model (GMM) supervectors has been proven to obtain better solutions for such problems. In this paper, based on the multiple kernel selection model, we introduce two non-linear kernels, which are derived from the linear kernels of GMM Kullback-Leibler divergence (GMM KL) and GMM-UBM mean interval (GUMI). The proposed method improved the AEC model's accuracy from 85.58% to 90.94% within the domain of home AEC.
