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:
  • 120k images from COCO
  • 1 dialog / image
  • 10 rounds of question-answers / dialog
  • Total 1.2M dialog question-answers
