Is BERT the Future of Image Pretraining? ByteDance Team’s BERT-like Pretrained Vision Transformer iBOT Achieves New SOTAs

A research team from ByteDance, Johns Hopkins University, Shanghai Jiao Tong University and UC Santa Cruz seeks to apply the proven technique of masked language modelling to the training of better vision transformers, presenting iBOT (image BERT pretraining with Online Tokenizer), a self-supervised framework that performs masked prediction with an online tokenizer.
