Explicit Knowledge-based Reasoning for Visual Question Answering

9 Nov 2015  ·  Peng Wang, Qi Wu, Chunhua Shen, Anton Van Den Hengel, Anthony Dick ·

We describe a method for visual question answering which is capable of reasoning about contents of an image on the basis of information extracted from a large-scale knowledge base. The method not only answers natural language questions using concepts not contained in the image, but can provide an explanation of the reasoning by which it developed its answer. The method is capable of answering far more complex questions than the predominant long short-term memory-based approach, and outperforms it significantly in the testing. We also provide a dataset and a protocol by which to evaluate such methods, thus addressing one of the key issues in general visual ques- tion answering.
