The Search and Hyperlinking Task at MediaEval 2014 is the third edition of this task. As in previous versions, it consisted of two sub-tasks: (i) answering search queries from a collection of roughly 2700 hours of BBC broadcast TV material, and (ii) linking anchor segments from within the videos to other target segments within the video collection. For MediaEval 2014, both sub-tasks were based on an ad-hoc retrieval scenario, and were evaluated using a pooling procedure across participants submissions with crowdsourcing relevance assessment using Amazon Mechanical Turk.
