1. Overview

DramaQA challenge is a large-scale video QA task based on a Korean popular TV show, “Another Miss Oh”. Given a video clip and a natural language question about the clip, the task is to choose an accurate natural language answer. The questions selectively target different level of difficulties, namely, the level of understanding.
Also, multi-level character-centered story descriptions are provided. We are expecting this challenge could be a starting point to evaluate human-level video story understanding.

The DramaQA train, validation, and test sets are available on the download page. Answers on the training and validation sets are publicly available but answers for test sets are not provided to challenge participants.
