Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7732)


The Video Browser Showdown (VBS) is a live competition for evaluating video browsing tools regarding their efficiency at known-item search (KIS) tasks. The first VBS was held at MMM 2012 with eight teams working on 14 tasks, of which eight were completed by expert users and six by novices. We describe the details of the competition, analyze results regarding the performance of tools, the differences between the tasks and the nature of the false submissions.
