演讲简介

Today’s deep models in the vision-language community are too brittle when we ask “why”: Why is the model designed like this? or, Why do we need to add visual attention here? or, Why is this model better than that one? Over the years, you must be obsessed with these why-s. Don’t worry, it seems that everyone is happy with them. Maybe it’s because we are indulging in the pleasure of model design, or we are just too lazy to think about them. So, till now, no one explains those why-s. In this talk, I will be the one! I will introduce Causality --- the glory of mind --- to dispel the mysteries. To show its power, I will offer four case studies: Image Captioning, Visual Dialog, VQA, and Scene Graph Generation. By using causality, we can improve all these tasks significantly without the need for designing any new model. After the talk, I hope you know “how”.
