Title: Making Computers Describe Images Automatically

Date: Friday 21th June 12-14

Venue: GW214

 

Computer programs usually require a programmer to say how to perform a task using step-by-step instructions. Artificial neural networks, on the other hand, are programs that can learn to perform a task just by showing them examples of what they are supposed to do. These are used to do all sorts of things from recognizing what object is in a photo to translating the language of a sentence. In this talk, I will be showing how these interesting programs can be trained in order to make them generate text and, more specifically, how to generate a description of a photo. I will be explaining in simple terms how I performed experiments to analyse the different ways of how this can be done and give the advantages and disadvantages of these methods.
