Quality of Experience Estimators in Networks (QuEEN)
The goal of the QuEEN project is to develop Quality of Experience (QoE) estimator agents which model a human user and act autonomously in future networks. These agents will be based upon models of human perception and trained from the best-fitting current profile for each service. The agents communicate with each other through the network on a peer-to-peer basis to exchange profile information so that services and applications can adapt to both-end preferences and expectations. Service providers can obtain QoE-relevant user information which is useful to adapt resource provisioning of the network and thus allows optimizing end-user experience and reducing costs. Mapping QoE measurements to Quality of Service (QoS), i.e. technical parameters, eventually allows enhancing Service Level Agreements (SLA) by incorporating the end-to-end experience rather than only technical, mostly non-intuitive, parameters.
The project will tasks are:
Both AIPA and Quality and Usability Lab are contributing to work package 2: “QoE models” which is led by AIPA.
