What is Visual Dialog?

Visual Dialog is a novel task that requires an AI agent to hold a meaningful dialog with humans in natural, conversational language about visual content. Specifically, given an image, a dialog history, and a follow-up question about the image, the agent has to answer the question.

    VisDial dataset:
  • >200k images from COCO
  • 1 dialog / image
  • 10 rounds of question-answers / dialog
  • Total >2M dialog question-answers
Dec 2016VisDial v0.5 dataset and code for real-time chat interface used to collect data on AMT are now available!

Later versions of the dataset, code, pretrained models and a Visual Chatbot on CloudCV coming soon!
