    Title: Bridging the Visual Knowledge Gaps in Pre-trained Models
    Committee: Xiang Ren (chair), Ram Nevatia, Yan Liu, Toby Mintz.
    Abstract: Humans acquire knowledge by processing visual information through observation and imagination, which expands our reasoning capability about the physical world we encounter every day. Despite significant progress in solving AI problems, current state-of-the-art models in natural language processing (NLP) and computer vision (CV) have limitations in terms of reasoning and generalization, particularly with complex reasoning on visual information and generalizing to unseen vision-language tasks. In this thesis, we aim to build a reasoner that can do complex reasoning about the physical world and generalization on vision-language tasks. we will present a few lines of work to bridge the visual knowledge gaps in pre-trained models.
