Improving the users' Quality of Experience (QoE) in modern 3D Multimedia Systems is a challenging proposition, mainly due to our limited knowledge of 3D image Quality Assessment algorithms. While subjective QoE methods would better reflect the nature of human perception, these are not suitable in real-time automation cases. In this paper we tackle this issue from a new angle, using deep learning to make predictions on the user's QoE rather than trying to measure it through deterministic algorithms. We benchmark our method, dubbed Quality of Experience for 3D images through Factored Third Order Restricted Boltzmann Machine (Q3D-RBM), with subjective QoE methods, to determine its accuracy for different types of 3D images. The outcome is a Reduced Reference QoE assessment process for automatic image assessment and has significant potential to be extended to work on 3D video assessment.
