Description:
Over the past decade, video sharing services such as YouTube have witnessed exponential traffic growth. In these services, some videos achieve immense popularity, over a billion views, while others fall into oblivion without ever attracting any interest. In this corner of the attention economy, views - sometimes called eyeballs - directly impacts advertising revenue and are therefore of prime importance to content producers, marketing agencies and service providers. As a result, over the past few years, the dynamics and prediction of user-generated content popularity has captured the attention of service providers, media agencies and academics alike. In this project, we will focus on an overlooked aspect of Video sharing services platforms and perform an in-depth analysis of the key players in the video sharing eco-systems. This is a multi disciplinary project, which tackles with different aspects of Data mining, User behavior and Content Delivery Networks.
