Building computer vision systems that can recognize objects belonging to a large number of categories is a challenging task for which there has been remarkable progress in recent years. Most of these advances have been fueled by the advent of deep learning and the high availability of annotated datasets. Deep learning has allowed to increase the ability of automated visual recognition systems to perform pattern recognition. However, achieving a more human-like understanding of images is still an open challenge. People use language to describe the visual world, and can reason about objects based on common sense knowledge, domain knowledge, or prior information. I will present a few directions we are pursuing at the vision and language group at the University of Virginia to incorporate these other sources of knowledge into the recognition problem.
