Recently, zero-shot learning (ZSL) has received increasing interest. The key idea underpinning existing ZSL approaches is to exploit knowledge transfer via an intermediate-level semantic representation which is assumed to be shared between the auxiliary and target datasets, and is used to bridge between these domains for knowledge transfer. The semantic representation used in existing approaches varies from visual attributes to semantic word vectors and semantic relatedness. However, the

In this paper we discuss two related lines of work improving the conventional approach: exploiting transductive learning ZSL, and generalising ZSL to the multi-label case.
