Audio Visual Scene-Aware Dialog

Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR)


We introduce the task of scene-aware dialog. Our goal is to generate a complete and natural response to a question about a scene, given video and audio of the scene and the history of previous turns in the dialog. To answer successfully, agents must ground concepts from the question in the video while leveraging contextual cues from the dialog history. To benchmark this task, we introduce the Audio Visual Scene-Aware Dialog (AVSD) Dataset. For each of more than 11,000 videos of human actions from the Charades dataset, our dataset contains a dialog about the video, plus a final summary of the video by one of the dialog participants. We train several baseline systems for this task and evaluate the performance of the trained models using both qualitative and quantitative metrics. Our results indicate that models must utilize all the available inputs (video, audio, question, and dialog history) to perform best on this dataset.
