This paper proposes CQ-VQA, a novel 2-level hierarchical but end-to-end model to solve the task of visual question answering (VQA). The first level of CQ-VQA, referred to as question categorizer (QC), classifies questions to reduce the potential answer search space. The QC uses attended and fused features of the input question and image. The second level, referred to as answer predictor (AP), comprises of a set of distinct classifiers corresponding to each question category. Depending on the

The proposed model (CQ-VQA) is evaluated on the TDIUC dataset and is benchmarked against state-of-the-art approaches. Results indicate competitive or better performance of CQ-VQA.
