Tell Me More: A Dataset of Visual Scene Description Sequences

Nikolai Ilinykh, Sina Zarrieß, David Schlangen


Abstract
We present a dataset consisting of what we call image description sequences, which are multi-sentence descriptions of the contents of an image. These descriptions were collected in a pseudo-interactive setting, where the describer was told to describe the given image to a listener who needs to identify the image within a set of images, and who successively asks for more information. As we show, this setup produced nicely structured data that, we think, will be useful for learning models capable of planning and realising such description discourses.
