What keeps us awake during the day
  • Can video be used as a proxy to assess network
    readiness for serious interactive gaming?
  • How do we use a zero-reference quality meter to
    enhance pervasive multimedia distribution?
  • How do we model user psychology and semantics in
    recommending TV programs and Ads?
  • How do we evolve from QoS to QoI to QoE?
  • How do we re-use core competencies in different
    verticals?
  • How do we promote Open Collaborations with
    Industry in multiple engagement models 1-1, 1-N,
    M-1, M-N ?

AVQ
  • Measures and monitors quality in any part of the
    video communication chain
  • Provides actionable real-time cues in closed-loop
    coding and networking
  • Value added by AVQ needs to be measured in
    market-specific experiments
