Improving Generative Visual Dialog by Answering Diverse Questions

Prior work on training generative Visual Dialog models with reinforcement learning (Das et al., 2017b) has explored a Q-BOT-A-BOT image-guessing game and shown that this ‘self-talk’ approach can lead to improved performance at the downstream…

Taking a HINT: Leveraging Explanations to Make Vision and Language Models More Grounded

Many vision and language models suffer from poor visual grounding – often falling back on easy-to-learn language priors rather than basing their decisions on visual concepts in the image. In this work, we propose a generic approach called Human…

NoCaps: Novel object captioning at scale

Image captioning models have achieved impressive results on datasets containing limited visual concepts and large amounts of paired image-caption training data. However, if these models are to ever function in the wild, a much larger variety of…
