Brief information

The program ikannotate2 was developed in cooperation with the Chair of Cognitive Systems of the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg and offers the possibility to annotate audio and video material. The focus of the annotation is on the annotationof emotions. In addition to category-based emotion (basic emotions) the Geneva-Emotion-Wheel as well as self-assessment manikins are supported. Further also own categories for labeling can be assigned.


Information about the predecessor (ikannotate) can be found here

Highlights of ikannotate2
  • Evaluation of emotions using various methods (list, dimensional, non-verbal, etc.)
  • Possibility to create own list-based categories
  • Additional assessment of uncertainty
  • Measurement of annotation time for each sample
  • Integration into Exmaralda-Workflow
  • Evaluation of Audio/Video files
  • Automatically send results to a web server
