In this paper, we introduce a violent scenes and violence-related concept detection dataset named VSD2014. It contains annotations as well as auditory and visual features of Hollywood movies and user-generated footage shared on the web. The dataset is the result of a joint annotation endeavor of different research institutions and responds to the real-world use case of parental guidance in selecting appropriate content for children. The dataset has been validated during the Violent Scenes Detection (VSD) task at the MediaEval benchmarking initiative for multimedia evaluation.
