MSVD (Microsoft Research Video Description Corpus)

Introduced by David L. Chen et al. in Collecting Highly Parallel Data for Paraphrase Evaluation

The Microsoft Research Video Description Corpus (MSVD) dataset consists of about 120K sentences collected during the summer of 2010. Workers on Mechanical Turk were paid to watch a short video snippet and then summarize the action in a single sentence. The result is a set of roughly parallel descriptions of more than 2,000 video snippets. Because the workers were urged to complete the task in the language of their choice, both paraphrase and bilingual alternations are captured in the data.
