QoEVAVE Outlook and Contributing

The QoEVAVE database is an inital step in curating audiovisual content for uni-/multimodal perception, cognition, behavior, and quality of experience (QoE) evaluations. We will be continuously updating the databse with additional scenes, as well as further metadata such as human ratings and saliency information.

We believe that providing open source material sets a strong yet transparent foundation for sharing results, helps foster communication across disciplines, and ultimately paves the way to to a more united research community. If your research team is interesed contributing to the database or having exisiting content referenced here as an attempt to collate audiovisual data for the benifit of the community, please do not hesitate to get in contact ✉️.
