Frequently Asked Questions


We are endeavouring to build better algorithms for answering questions about images, also known as Visual Question Answering (VQA). To construct these VQA algorithms, we need to generate questions and answers about the images (i.e., ground truth). By interacting with our web application to ask and answer questions about images, you will be providing us with the additional data to make our algorithms work better.
This website uses one of the models from our CVPR paper . We advise readers to read the paper for the full technical details about the algorithm used for answering questions

Kafle, K., Kanan, C. (2016) Answer-Type Prediction for Visual Question Answering. In: Proc. IEEE Conference on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition (CVPR-2016). [PAPER LINK]

The images presented here are sourced from MS-COCO training images.
You can ask almost any kind of question as long as the answer to it can be inferred using the contents of the shown image and our system will try to answer it. It is trained to answer generic open-ended questions. Common questions include but are not limited to yes/no questions, activity recognition (what sport/activity?) ,scene understanding (type of room, indoor/outdoor, weather, seasons), color recognition (what color?), Emotions (happy? sad?), Location (where? What is to the left/right?) counting (How many?). It is,however, not trained to recognize faces (e.g celebrities or actors) or perform expert fine-grained tasks (e.g bird species recognition).
We save the data with aim of making our algorithm work better. The exact terms of engaging with the website are governed by Terms of Service
There is no reward for participating in this website besides any entertainment value to you. Your questions and feedback will be used to make better VQA systems. Also, the use of the web service at askimage.org is completely voluntary and you may stop using the website at any point of time without any penalty or loss of benefits. You may interact with the website for as long or as little time as you desire. There are no direct risks associated with interactions with our website. However, you may see images that you find offensive, inappropriate or otherwise disagreeable as we have not reviewed all the images that may be presented. Your interactions with the website are confidential as no personally identifiable information about you is stored. It is, however, your responsibility to not upload any identifiable documents or images to our web service. The exact terms of engaging with the website are governed by Terms of Service
