1. Overview

DramaQA challenge will be conducted as a proxy task of the Turing Test for video story understanding. DramaQA is a story-centered video question answering dataset which uses episodes from a TV drama series, Another Miss Oh (We received official permission to use these episodes for research purposes from the content provider.) as the source. The DramaQA dataset provides video clips with visual annotations (e.g., characters, place, objects and objects related to the characters), subtitles with co-reference annotations (to the characters) and QA sets with carefully designed multi-level difficulty annotations. Evaluation metric is the accuracy of multiple-choice QA sets.
