A causal view of compositional zero-shot recognition

Meta Review

All four reviewers appreciated the neat idea contained in this paper which is also shown to work well in practice. The authors open up the way for studying data generation processes through causal interventions, which is a novel and technically interesting direction. Most importantly, it is a significant direction which is expected to stimulate further research in the field. I am recommending acceptance of this paper, however please consider revising the manuscript to address R4’s remarks about clarity and R2’s and R3’s remarks about deeper discussion of failure cases and limitations.
