This paper investigates the role of gaze movements as implicit user feedback during interactive video retrieval tasks. In this context, we use a content-based video search engine to perform an interactive video retrieval experiment, during which, we record the user gaze movements with the aid of an eye-tracking device and generate features for each video shot based on aggregated past user eye fixation and pupil dilation data. Then, we employ support vector machines, in order to train a classifier that could identify shots marked as relevant to a new query topic submitted by new users. The positive results provided by the classifier are used as recommendations for future users, who search for similar topics. The evaluation shows that important information can be extracted from aggregated gaze movements during video retrieval tasks, while the involvement of pupil dilation data improves the performance of the system and facilitates interactive video search.
