Pragyan ML Challenge

Generating natural language description of an image, also known as image captioning is a well-studied problem. The task of image captioning requires detection of various objects and their attributes in the image, the relation between these objects and generating a syntactic and semantic description in natural language description. Image captioning is important for multiple applications such as Content Based Image Retrieval and social media websites for recommending automatic captions of images.
