./Questions

  • For both real and abstract, download the question files from the VQA download page, extract them and place in this folder.
  • Question files from Beta v0.9 release (123,287 MSCOCO train and val images, 369,861 questions, 3,698,610 answers) can be found below
  • Question files from Beta v0.1 release (10k MSCOCO images, 30k questions, 300k answers) can be found here.

./Annotations

  • For both real and abstract, download the annotation files from the VQA download page, extract them and place in this folder.

./Images

  • For real, create a directory with name mscoco inside this directory. For each of train, val and test, create directories with names train2014, val2014 and test2015 respectively inside mscoco directory, download respective images from MS COCO website and place them in respective folders.
  • For abstract, create a directory with name abstract_v002 inside this directory. For each of train, val and test, create directories with names train2015, val2015 and test2015 respectively inside abstract_v002 directory, download respective images from VQA download page and place them in respective folders.

./QuestionTypes

  • This directory contains the following lists of question types for both real and abstract questions. In a list, if there are question types of length n+k and length n with the same first n words, then the question type of length n does not include questions that belong to the question type of length n+k.
