Google Machine Learning Models for Image Captioning Ported to TensorFlow and Open-Sourced

.@google open-sources a TensorFlow model for image captioning

  • Google Machine Learning Models for Image Captioning Ported to TensorFlow and Open-Sourced
  • The model comes up with a caption that hadn’t previously existed.
  • The model appears to address this problem by introducing a fine-tuning phase that allows the model to extract information useful for describing details of objects, exclusive of the classification phase.
  • Google chronicled their journey over the past few years with their announcement around open-sourcing a TensorFlow model for image captioning, and some of the testing for comparing accuracy and performance benchmarks between the new approach and existing implementations.
  • It splits the image classification phase for identifying objects from another phase that adds adjectives and prepositional phrases, and from a phase in which the model gives the caption structure to make it more syntactically correct and humanlike.

As TensorFlow becomes more widely adopted in the machine learning and data science domains, existing machine learning models and engines are being ported from existing frameworks to TensorFlow for improved performance, furthering the adoption and success of the open-sourced project.
