Oscar: Object-Semantics Aligned Pre-training for Vision-and-Language Tasks

VinVL: Revisiting Visual Representations in Vision-Language Models

Updates

05/28/2020: Released finetuned models on downstream tasks, please check MODEL_ZOO.md.
05/15/2020: Released pretrained models, datasets, and code for downstream tasks finetuning.
01/13/2021: our new work VinVL proposed OSCAR+, an improved version of OSCAR, and provided a better object-attribute detection model to extract features for V+L tasks. The VinVL work achieved SOTA performance on all seven V+L tasks here. Please stay tuned for the model and code release.
03/08/2021: Oscar+ pretraining code released, please check the last section in VinVL_MODEL_ZOO.md. All image features and model checkpoints in VinVL are also released. Please check VinVL for details.
04/13/2021: Our Scene Graph Benchmark Repo has been released. Welcome to use the code there to extract image features with VinVL pretrained models.

Introduction

This repository contains source code necessary to reproduce the results presented in the paper Oscar: Object-Semantics Aligned Pre-training for Vision-Language Tasks. We propose a new cross-modal pre-training method Oscar (Object-Semantics Aligned Pre-training). It leverages object tags detected in images as anchor points to significantly ease the learning of image-text alignments. We pre-train Oscar on the public corpus of 6.5 million text-image pairs, and fine-tune it on downstream tasks, creating new state-of-the-arts on six well-established vision-language understanding and generation tasks. For more on this project, see the Microsoft Research Blog post.
