Improving Adverb Recognition

by Morgan Stevens

Researchers at the University of Edinburgh have created a dataset of cooking videos that show actions performed in ways that change according to an adverb to improve adverb recognition models. The dataset contains over 7,000 videos featuring 186 verb-adverb pairs in which the adverb significantly changed the action described by the verb, such as “chop onions thinly” versus “chop onions coarsely.” Researchers can use the dataset to train AI systems to better understand how an action should be performed, such as an AI system directing a robot to pick an item up gently.
