Raffaella Bernardi: An old Artificial Intelligence dream that comes true: Merging language and vision modalities
September 10, 2018 @ 3:15 pm - 4:30 pmFree
In the last decade, there has been an explosion of papers on the combination of the language and vision modalities. In this tutorial, we will first aim to understand why this is happening, what has made the investigation possible, and where do we stand now. We will see that research has been mostly been driven by applications, but that behind this work there are quite interesting foundational questions. We will conclude the tutorial by zooming into the issue of grounding and reference that has been in the discussion of Artificial Intelligence, and in particular of Computational Linguistics, since its start.
