Preliminary study 3: Conflict

In the third preliminary study of SIRUP we tried to identify indicators that predict the perceived conflict of a television program. In the current context, conflict refers to incongruency in peoples’ evaluation of a program. During this project we work with broadcasting data from BBC’s ViSTA-TV project. Based on the available data from this project and external public sources, we identified two possible indicators for conflict (see Figure 1):

  • Variance (SD) in IMDB user ratings
  • Variance (SD) in BBC user ratings
