Summary: 
This Letter proposes a autoencoder model supervised by semantic similarity for zero-shot learning. With the help of semantic similarity vectors of seen and unseen classes and the classification branch, our experimental results on two datasets are 7.3% and 4% better than the state-of-the-art on conventional zero-shot learning in terms of the averaged top-1 accuracy.
