Abstract

Image description datasets, such as
Flickr30K and MS COCO, show a high
degree of variation in the ways that crowd-
workers talk about the world. Although
this gives us a rich and diverse collection
of data to work with, it also introduces un-
certainty about how the world should be
described. This paper shows the extent of
this uncertainty in the PEOPLE domain. We
present a taxonomy of different ways to
talk about other people. This taxonomy
serves as a reference point to think about
how other people should be described, and
can be used to classify and compute statis-
tics about labels applied to people.
