Visual Question Answering Using Semantic Information from Image Descriptions
Keywords:Deep Learning, Natural Language Processing, Computer Vision
In this work, we propose a deep neural architecture that uses an attention mechanism which utilizes region based image features, the natural language question asked, and semantic knowledge extracted from the regions of an image to produce open-ended answers for questions asked in a visual question answering (VQA) task. The combination of both region based features and region based textual information about the image bolsters a model to more accurately respond to questions and potentially do so with less required training data. We evaluate our proposed architecture on a VQA task against a strong baseline and show that our method achieves excellent results on this task.
