Violin (VIdeO-and-Language INference)

Introduced by Liu et al. in VIOLIN: A Large-Scale Dataset for Video-and-Language Inference

Video-and-Language Inference is the task of joint multimodal understanding of video and text. Given a video clip with aligned subtitles as premise, paired with a natural language hypothesis based on the video content, a model needs to infer whether the hypothesis is entailed or contradicted by the given video clip. The Violin dataset is a dataset for this task which consists of 95,322 video-hypothesis pairs from 15,887 video clips, spanning over 582 hours of video. These video clips contain rich content with diverse temporal dynamics, event shifts, and people interactions, collected from two sources: (i) popular TV shows, and (ii) movie clips from YouTube channels.
