Ifelt: accessing movies through our emotions
Films are by excellence the form of art that exploits our affective, perceptual and intellectual activity. Technological developments and the trends for media convergence are turning video into a dominant and pervasive medium and online video is becoming a growing entertainment activity on the web and iTV. The improvement of new techniques for gathering emotional information about videos, both through content analysis or user implicit feedback through user physiological signals, is revealing an unfolding of new ways for exploring emotional information in videos, films or TV series, and brings out new perspectives to personalize user information. We present iFelt - an interactive web video application to classify, access, explore and visualize movies based on their emotional characteristics. In this work, we explore the design and evaluate different ways to access, browse and visualize movies and their contents.
