Paying attention to words, not just images, leads to better captions

Paying attention to words, not just images, leads to better captions

March 15, 2016

A team of University and Adobe researchers is outperforming other approaches to creating computer-generated image captions in an international competition. The key to their winning approach? Thinking about words – what they mean and how they fit in a sentence structure – just as much as thinking about the image itself.
