Meeting Description: Workshop On Vision And Language 2014 (VL'14), Dublin, 23rd August 2014

The 3rd Annual Meeting Of The EPSRC Network On Vision & Language and The 1st Technical Meeting of the European Network on Integrating Vision and Language

A Workshop of the 25th International Conference on Computational Linguistics (COLING 2014)

Fragments of natural language, in the form of tags, captions, subtitles, surrounding text or audio, can aid the interpretation of image and video data by adding context or disambiguating visual appearance. In addition, labelled images are essential for training object or activity classifiers. On the other hand, visual data can help resolve challenges in language processing such as word sense disambiguation. Studying language and vision together can also provide new insight into cognition and universal representations of knowledge and meaning. Meanwhile, sign language and gestures are languages that require visual interpretation.
