  • The annotations of these shots and key-frames
  • Additional low-level features computed on the material

Technicolor, the University Politehnica of Bucharest, the University of Helsinki, the Tongji University, the Singapore University of Technology and Design, Singapore and the University of Science, Vietnam share the copyright and all rights of authorship on the data. Technicolor is the principal distributor of the Interestingness dataset. 

Release of the dataset

To advance the state-of-the-art in predicting media interestingness, the Interestingness Dataset is made available to the researcher community for scientific research only. All other uses of the Interestingness Dataset will be considered on a case-by-case basis. To receive a copy of the Interestingness Dataset, the requestor must agree to observe all of these Terms of use.
