Vatex Video Captioning Challenge 2020: Multi-View Features and Hybrid Reward Strategies for Video Captioning

This report describes our solution for the VATEX Captioning Challenge 2020, which requires generating descriptions for the videos in both English and Chinese languages. We identified three crucial factors that improve the performance, namely: multi-view features, hybrid reward, and diverse ensemble. Based on our method of VATEX 2019 challenge, we achieved significant improvements this year with more advanced model architectures, combination of appearance and motion features, and careful hyper-parameters tuning. Our method achieves very competitive results on both of the Chinese and English video captioning tracks.
