Investigating Embeddings Produced by Multimodal models

Started Nov. 22, 2023

Abstract or project description

The advent of LLMs and multimodal models in the past year has given machine learning models the ability to treat language and vision data interchangeably. We propose a case study investigating the properties of embeddings produced by multimodal models. In particular, we plan to compare the performance of models trained on raw inputs (e.g. pixels) compared to the embeddings produced from models like CLIP. We also plan to investigate the embeddings produced by language descriptions of the images, and evaluate how they can be incorporated into classification to get better performance.
