ViQuAE, a Dataset for Knowledge-based Visual Question Answering about Named Entities

Abstract

Whether to retrieve, answer, translate, or reason, multimodality opens up new challenges and perspectives. In this context, we are interested in answering questions about named entities grounded in a visual context using a Knowledge Base (KB). To benchmark this task, called KVQAE (Knowledge-based Visual Question Answering about named Entities), we provide ViQuAE, a dataset of 3.7K questions paired with images. This is the first KVQAE dataset to cover a wide range of entity types (e.g. persons, landmarks, and products). The dataset is annotated using a semi-automatic method. We also propose a KB composed of 1.5M Wikipedia articles paired with images. To set a baseline on the benchmark, we address KVQAE as a two-stage problem: Information Retrieval and Reading Comprehension, with both zero-and few-shot learning methods. The experiments empirically demonstrate the difficulty of the task, especially when questions are not about persons. This work paves the way for better multimodal entity representations and question answering. The dataset, KB, code, and semi-automatic annotation pipeline are freely available at https://github.com/PaulLerner/ViQuAE.
