Zero-Shot Learning-A Comprehensive Evaluation of the Good, the Bad and the Ugly - 2018

Zero-Shot Learning-A Comprehensive Evaluation Of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Research Paper on Zero-Shot Learning-A Comprehensive Evaluation Of The Good, The Bad And The Ugly

Research Area:  Machine Learning


Due to the importance of zero-shot learning, i.e., classifying images where there is a lack of labeled training data, the number of proposed approaches has recently increased steadily. We argue that it is time to take a step back and to analyze the status quo of the area. The purpose of this paper is three-fold. First, given the fact that there is no agreed upon zero-shot learning benchmark, we first define a new benchmark by unifying both the evaluation protocols and data splits of publicly available datasets used for this task. This is an important contribution as published results are often not comparable and sometimes even flawed due to, e.g., pre-training on zero-shot test classes. Moreover, we propose a new zero-shot learning dataset, the Animals with Attributes 2 (AWA2) dataset which we make publicly available both in terms of image features and the images themselves. Second, we compare and analyze a significant number of the state-of-the-art methods in depth, both in the classic zero-shot setting but also in the more realistic generalized zero-shot setting. Finally, we discuss in detail the limitations of the current status of the area which can be taken as a basis for advancing it.
