Starting from the publicly available VGG-ish feature extraction combined with a single layer GRU classifier (which consists of 70M parameters), properly using the student-teacher approach we compress are able to compress the network to 20K parameter reducing the classification accuracy only from 75% to 70% on UrbanSound8k.
