Recently, various crowdsourcing initiatives showed that targeted efforts of user communities result in massive amounts of tags. For example, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision collected a large number of tags with the video labeling game Waisda?. To successfully utilize these tags, a better understanding of their characteristics is required. The(More)
The Waisda? video labeling game is a crowsourcing tool to collect user-generated metadata for video clips. It follows the paradigm of games-with-a-purpose, where two or more users play against each other by entering tags that describe the content of the video. Players score points by entering the same tags as one of the other players. As a result each video(More)
The goal of the paper is assessing the quality of end-user tags from a video labeling game as a first step in the process of integrating them with the annotations made by professionals. Tags lack precise meaning, whereas the terms and concepts the professionals are used to have a clearly defined semantics given by structured vocabularies. Hence, we explore(More)
Games with a purpose (GWAPs) are increasingly used in audiovisual collections as a mechanism for annotating videos through tagging. This trend is driven by the assumption that user tags will improve video search. In this paper we study whether this is indeed the case. To this end, we create an evaluation dataset that consists of: (i) a set of videos tagged(More)
In recent years, crowdsourcing has gained attention as an alternative method for collecting video annotations. An example is the internet video labeling game Waisda? launched by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. The goal of this PhD research is to investigate the value of the user tags collected with this video labeling game. To this end, we(More)
