Description

Waisda is a video labeling game from the VU and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. In this game users score points by entering tags for a video. Typically, the tags that users enter describe what you can see and hear in the video. In this project you investigate how users can be taught to provide more in-depth descriptions. For example, in the movie domain we can distinguish categories, such as:

  • Factual. What you see or hear in the scene, such as objects, persons, places and actions (e.g. woman, sofa, London, R2D2, murder).
  • Cinematographic. Stylistic features, such as form, style, framing, camera movement, lightning key, type of shot, camera angle (e.g. backlighting, wide-angle, close-up, fade-out, caligarism).
  • Explanatory. Symbolic interpretation of the meaning or theme (e.g. psychotic rage, oppression, dehumanization).
  • Emotional. The emotions, thoughts or intentions of the characters (e.g. bored, happiness, despair) or your own emotions (e.g. boring, fascinating).

A possible approach is to create multiple levels in Waisda.

  • At the basic level users are instructed about the different categories
  • At the medium level users have to show that they can apply the tags from different categories appropriately
  • At the expert level users can teach or judge basic or medium level users

Tasks

  • study literature on crowdsourcing, games-with-a-purpose, video tagging/annotation and movie theory
  • extend Waisda with basic support for levels
  • collected feedback from experts and users
  • evaluate the experiences with the application and/or the quality of the collected data
