MS-COCO Caption Evaluation for Python 3
Microsoft COCO Caption Evaluation
Evaluation codes for MS COCO caption generation.
This repository provides Python 3 support for the caption evaluation metrics used for the MS COCO dataset.
The code is derived from the original repository that supports Python 2.7: https://github.com/tylin/coco-caption.
Caption evaluation depends on the COCO API that natively supports Python 3.
- Java 1.8.0
- Python 3
To install pycocoevalcap and the pycocotools dependency (https://github.com/cocodataset/cocoapi), run:
pip install pycocoevalcap
See the example script: example/coco_eval_example.py
- eval.py: The file includes COCOEavlCap class that can be used to evaluate results on COCO.
- tokenizer: Python wrapper of Stanford CoreNLP PTBTokenizer
- bleu: Bleu evalutation codes
- meteor: Meteor evaluation codes
- rouge: Rouge-L evaluation codes
- cider: CIDEr evaluation codes
- spice: SPICE evaluation codes
- SPICE requires the download of Stanford CoreNLP 3.6.0 code and models. This will be done automatically the first time the SPICE evaluation is performed.
- Note: SPICE will try to create a cache of parsed sentences in ./spice/cache/. This dramatically speeds up repeated evaluations. The cache directory can be moved by setting 'CACHE_DIR' in ./spice. In the same file, caching can be turned off by removing the '-cache' argument to 'spice_cmd'.

- PTBTokenizer: We use the Stanford Tokenizer which is included in Stanford CoreNLP 3.4.1.
- BLEU: BLEU: a Method for Automatic Evaluation of Machine Translation
- Meteor: Project page with related publications. We use the latest version (1.5) of the Code. Changes have been made to the source code to properly aggreate the statistics for the entire corpus.

- CIDEr: CIDEr: Consensus-based Image Description Evaluation
- SPICE: SPICE: Semantic Propositional Image Caption Evaluation
