1. A method for identifying sound events, comprising:
receiving one or more signals corresponding to incoming sound events;
for each of one or more of the incoming sound events:
deconstructing the corresponding signal into one or more audio chunks;
determining one or more sound identification characteristics based on the corresponding one or more audio chunks;
generating a sound vector based on the corresponding sound identification characteristics;
determining, in real time, if the incoming sound event matches one or more of a plurality of predefined sound events, the determination being performed by each of the predefined sound events for its respective predefined sound event; and
identifying the incoming sound event based on the determination performed by the plurality of predefined sound events.
