Recent years have seen the increasing popularity of the use of videos in tourism and hospitality, such as Vlog. However, analysing videos presents significant methodological challenges with multiple types of unstructured data, including visual, audio, and textual information. This research seminar will provide an overview of video analytics by showing how researchers can leverage video analytics to gain insights into human behaviour in a more structured and systematic way. A case study of analysing pro-environmental tourism videos using video analytics will be demonstrated.


Prof. Mingming CHENG is an Associate Professor in Digital Marketing and Director of the Social Media Research Lab in the School of Management and Marketing at Curtin University, Australia. Prof. Cheng is an award-winning researcher and educator with an international reputation in social media marketing and tourism.
