Welcome to the User-centric Analysis of Multimedia Data Group


The research area of the group includes the acquisition and modelling of subjective Quality of Experience (QoE) of media data and technical systems, as well as the user-centric optimisation of technical systems. Crowdsourcing is another central research focus of the department and is primarily used in the implementation of large-scale user studies.Further Information
