Prerequisites

  • Python 2.7
  • Pytorch 0.2 or 0.3
  • CUDA 8.0
  • Mask R-CNN: Follow the instructions of the mask-faster-rcnn repo, preparing everything needed for pyutils/mask-faster-rcnn.
  • REFER API and data: Use the download links of REFER and go to the foloder running make. Follow data/README.md to prepare images and refcoco/refcoco+/refcocog annotations.
  • COCO training set should be downloaded in pyutils/mask-faster-rcnn/data/coco/images/train2014.

Preprocessing

The processed data is uploaded in cache/prepro/.

Training

  • <DATASET> <SPLITBY> pairs contain: refcoco unc/refcoco+ unc/refcocog umd/refcocog google

  • Output model will be saved at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/output_<OUTPUT_POSTFIX>. If there are trained models in this directory, the model of the latest iteratioin will be loaded.

  • The iteration when learning rate decay is specified as STEPSIZE in train_*.sh.

  1. Train the baseline segmentation model with only 1 dynamic filter:
./experiments/scripts/train_baseline.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX>
  1. Train the model with spatial dynamic filters:
./experiments/scripts/train_spatial.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX>
  1. Train the model with spatial dynamic filters and caption loss:
./experiments/scripts/train_cycle.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> att2in2 <CAPTION_LOSS_WEIGHT>

The pretrained Mask R-CNN model should be placed at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/output_<OUTPUT_POSTFIX>. If there are multiple models in the directory, the model of the latest iteration will be loaded.

The pretrained caption model should be placed at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/caption_log_res5_2/, named as model-best.pth and infos-best.pkl.

  1. Train the model with spatial dynamic filters and response loss:
./experiments/scripts/train_response.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX>
  1. Train the model with spatial dynamic filters, response loss and caption loss:
./experiments/scripts/train_cycle_response.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> att2in2 <CAPTION_LOSS_WEIGHT>

The pretrained Mask R-CNN model should be placed at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/output_<OUTPUT_POSTFIX>. If there are multiple models in the directory, the model of the latest iteration will be loaded.

The pretrained caption model should be placed at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/caption_log_response/, named as model-best.pth and infos-best.pkl.

  1. Train the model with spatial dynamic filters and response loss for VGG16 and Faster R-CNN:

Download the pre-trained Faster R-CNN model here (coco_900k-1190k.tar), and put the .pth and .pkl files in pyutils/mask-faster-rcnn/output/vgg16/coco_2014_train+coco_2014_valminusminival/

./experiments/scripts/train_vgg.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX>

Evaluation

  1. Evaluate the baseline segmentation model:
./experiments/scripts/eval_baseline.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> <MODEL_ITER>

Evaluate the model at <DATASET>_<SPLITBY>/output_<OUTPUT_POSTFIX>, of trained iteration <MODEL_ITER>.

Detection and segmentation results will be saved at experiments/det_results.txt and experiments/mask_results.txt respectively.

  1. Evaluate the model with spatial dynamic filters (and caption loss):
./experiments/scripts/eval_spatial.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> <MODEL_ITER>
  1. Evaluate the model with spatial dynamic filters and response loss (and caption loss):
./experiments/scripts/eval_response.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> <MODEL_ITER>
  1. Evaluate the model with spatial dynamic filters and response loss for VGG16 and Faster R-CNN:
./experiments/scripts/eval_vgg.sh <GPUID> <DATASET> <SPLITBY> <OUTPUT_POSTFIX> <MODEL_ITER>
