Visual Semantic Navigation using Scene Priors

  title={Visual Semantic Navigation using Scene Priors},
  author={Wei Yang and Xiaolong Wang and Ali Farhadi and Abhinav Gupta and Roozbeh Mottaghi},
How do humans navigate to target objects in novel scenes? Do we use the semantic/functional priors we have built over years to efficiently search and navigate? For example, to search for mugs, we search cabinets near the coffee machine and for fruits we try the fridge. In this work, we focus on incorporating semantic priors in the task of semantic navigation. We propose to use Graph Convolutional Networks for incorporating the prior knowledge into a deep reinforcement learning framework. The… CONTINUE READING
