Share Your Science: Training a Machine to Answer Questions About Images

Aishwarya Agrawal, PhD student at Virginia Tech shares how her team is using NVIDIA GPUs and deep learning to automatically answer a wide range of questions about arbitrary images.

According to Agrawal and her collaborators, the system may one day be used by the visually impaired to help navigate real-world environments, such as informing the user when it is safe to cross the street.

To learn more, try the online demo or read their research paper “VQA: Visual Question Answering”.
