Abstract

The quality of experience (QoE) is known to be subjective and context-dependent. Identifying and calculating the factors that affect QoE is indeed a difficult task. Recently, a lot of effort has been devoted to estimate the users' QoE in order to improve video delivery. In the literature, most of the QoE-driven optimization schemes that realize trade-offs among different quality metrics have been addressed under the assumption of homogenous populations. Nevertheless, people perceptions on a given video quality may not be the same, which makes the QoE optimization a hard task. This paper aims at taking a step further in order to address this limitation and meet users' profiles. Specifically, we propose a closed-loop control framework based on the users' (subjective) feedbacks to learn the QoE function and optimize it at the same time. Extensive simulation results show that the proposed scheme converges to a steady state, where the resulting QoE function noticeably improves the users' feedbacks.
