In this paper, we apply a genetic algorithm (GA) for feature selection, wrapper approach, on wavelet scattering (WS) second-order coefficients to reduce the large frequency dimension (>500). The evaluation demonstrates the capability of GA to reduce the dimension space by approximately 30% while ensuring a minimum performance drop. Furthermore, the reduced WS directly impacts the training time of the convolutional neural network, by reducing the computational time by 20% to 32%. The paper extends its scopes to explore GA for feature selection on multiple timescales of WS: 46ms, 92ms, 185ms, and 371ms. Incorporating multiple timescales has improved classification performance (by ~around 2.5%) as an acoustic representation usually contains information at different time scales. However, it can increase computational cost due to the larger frequency dimension of 1851. With the application of GA for feature selection, the frequency dimension is reduced by 50%, saving around 40% computational time, thus increasing the classification performance by 3% compared to a vanilla WS. Lastly, the entire implementations are evaluated using the Detection and Classification of Acoustic Scenes and Events (DCASE) 2020 dataset, and the proposed multiple timescales model achieves 73.32% of classification accuracy.
