Looking Similar, Sounding Different: Leveraging Counterfactual Cross-Modal Pairs for Audiovisual Representation Learning

no code implementations12 Apr 2023 Nikhil Singh, Chih-Wei Wu, Iroro Orife, Mahdi Kalayeh

We additionally compare this approach to a strong baseline where we remove speech before pretraining, and find that dub-augmented training is more effective, including for paralinguistic and audiovisual tasks where speech removal leads to worse performance.
