VizWiz Dataset

We propose an artificial intelligence challenge to design algorithms that assist people who are blind to overcome their daily visual challenges. For this purpose, we introduce the VizWiz dataset, which originates from a natural visual question answering setting where blind people each took an image and recorded a spoken question about it, together with 10 crowdsourced answers per visual question. Our proposed challenge addresses the following two tasks for this dataset: (1) predict the answer to a visual question and (2) predict whether a visual question cannot be answered. Ultimately, we hope this work will educate more people about the technological needs of blind people while providing an exciting new opportunity for researchers to develop assistive technologies that eliminate accessibility barriers for blind people.
