LiT: Zero-Shot Transfer with Locked-image Text Tuning

August 19, 2022

This paper presents contrastive-tuning, a simple method employing contrastive training to align image and text models while still taking advantage of their pre-training. In our empirical study we find that locked pre-trained image models with unlocked text models work best. We call this instance of contrastive-tuning “Locked-image Tuning” (LiT), which just teaches a text model to read out good representations from a pre-trained image model for new tasks.
