LoGAN: Latent graph co-attention network for weakly-supervised video moment retrieval

View publication


The goal of weakly-supervised video moment retrieval is to localize the video segment most relevant to a description without access to temporal annotations during training. Prior work uses co-attention mechanisms to understand relationships between the vision and language data, but they lack contextual information between video frames that can be useful to determine how well a segment relates to the query. To address this, we propose an efficient Latent Graph Co-Attention Network (LoGAN) that exploits fine-grained frame-by-word interactions to jointly reason about the correspondences between all possible pairs of frames, providing context cues absent in prior work. Experiments on the DiDeMo and Charades-STA datasets demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach, where we improve Recall@1 by 520% over prior weakly-supervised methods, even boasting an 11% gain over strongly-supervised methods on DiDeMo, while also using significantly fewer model parameters than other co-attention mechanisms.
