    To mitigate the problems of visual ambiguity and domain shift in conventional zero-shot learning (ZSL), in this paper, we propose a novel method, namely, dual-verification network (DVN), which accepts features and attributes in a pairwise manner as input and verifies the result in both the attribute and feature spaces. First, the DVN projects a feature onto an orthogonal space, where the projected feature has maximum correlation with its corresponding attribute and is orthogonal to all the other attributes. Second, we adopt the concept of semantic feature representation, which computes the relationship between the semantic feature and class labels. Based on this concept, we project the attributes onto the feature space by extending the attributes and labels from the class level to instance level. In addition, we employ a deep architecture and utilize the cross entropy loss to train an end-to-end network for dual verification. Extensive experiments in ZSL and generalized ZSL are performed on four well-known datasets, and the results show tha43-57t the proposed DVN exhibits a competitive performance relative to the state-of-the-art methods.
