Adversarial reconstruction for Multi-modal Machine Translation

7 Oct 2019  ·  Jean-Benoit Delbrouck, Stéphane Dupont ·

Even with the growing interest in problems at the intersection of Computer Vision and Natural Language, grounding (i.e. identifying) the components of a structured description in an image still remains a challenging task. This contribution aims to propose a model which learns grounding by reconstructing the visual features for the Multi-modal translation task... Previous works have partially investigated standard approaches such as regression methods to approximate the reconstruction of a visual input. In this paper, we propose a different and novel approach which learns grounding by adversarial feedback. To do so, we modulate our network following the recent promising adversarial architectures and evaluate how the adversarial response from a visual reconstruction as an auxiliary task helps the model in its learning. We report the highest scores in term of BLEU and METEOR metrics on the different datasets. read more
