Introduction

This repository is keras implementation of MCN. The principle of MCN is a multimodal and multitask collaborative learning framework. In MCN, RES can help REC to achieve better language-vision alignment, while REC can help RES to better locate the referent. In addition, we address a key challenge in this multi-task setup, i.e., the prediction conflict, with two innovative designs namely, Consistency Energy Maximization (CEM) and Adaptive Soft Non-Located Suppression (ASNLS). The network structure is illustrated as following:

Prerequisites

  • Python 3.6

  • tensorflow-1.9.0 for cuda 9 or tensorflow-1.14.0 for cuda10

  • keras-2.2.4

  • spacy (you should download the glove embeddings by running spacy download en_vectors_web_lg )

  • Others (progressbar2, opencv, etc. see requirement.txt)

Data preparation

  •  Follow the instructions of DATA_PRE_README.md to generate training data and testing data of RefCOCO, RefCOCO+ and RefCOCOg.

  •  Download the pretrained weights of backbone (vgg and darknet). We provide pretrained weights of keras version for this repo and another darknet version for facilitating the researches based on pytorch or other frameworks. All pretrained backbones are trained on COCO 2014 train+val set while removing the images appeared in the val+test sets of RefCOCO, RefCOCO+ and RefCOCOg (nearly 6500 images). Please follow the instructions of DATA_PRE_README.md to download them.

Training

  1. Preparing your settings. To train a model, you should modify ./config/config.json to adjust the settings you want. The default settings are used for RefCOCO, which are easy to achieve 80.0 and 62.0 accuracy for REC and RES respectively on the val set. We also provide example configs for reproducing our results on RefCOCO+ and RefCOCOg.
  2. Training the model. run train.py under the main folder to start training:
python train.py
  1. Testing the model. You should modify the setting json to check the model path evaluate_model and dataset evaluate_set using for evaluation. Then, you can run test.py by
python test.py

​ After finishing the evaluation, a result file will be generated in ./result folder.

  1. Training log. Logs are stored in ./log directory, which records the detailed training curve and accuracy per epoch. If you want to log the visualizations, please set log_images to 1 in config.json. By using tensorboard you can see the training details like below:

Notably, running this codes can achieve better performance than the results of our paper. (Nearly 1~4% improvements on each dataset.) This is because we have done many optimizations lately, such as carefully adjusting some training hyperparameters, optimizing the training codes and selecting a better checkpoint of pre-trained backbone, etc. In addition, it's fine that the losses do not decline when you use vgg16 as backbone. It may be a display problem and doesn't influence the performance.

Pre-trained Models and Logs

Following the steps of Data preparation and Training, you can reproduce and get better results in our paper. We provide the pre-trained models and training logs for RefCOCO, RefCOCO+, RefCOCOg and Referit.
