New Algorithm Follows Human Intuition to Make Visual Captioning More Grounded

Annotating and labeling datasets for machine learning problems is an expensive and time-consuming process for computer vision and natural language scientists. However, a new deep learning approach is being used to decode, localize, and reconstruct image and video captions in seconds, making the machine-generated captions more reliable and trustworthy. To solve this problem, researchers at… Continue reading New Algorithm Follows Human Intuition to Make Visual Captioning More Grounded
