We present a method for fine-grained object recognition problem, that aims to recognize the type of an object among a large number of sub-categories, and zero-shot learning scenario on multispectral images. In order to establish a relation between seen classes and new unseen classes, a compatibility function between image features extracted from a convolutional neural network and auxiliary information of classes is learnt. Knowledge transfer for unseen classes is carried out by maximizing this function. Performance of the model (15.2%) evaluated with manually annotated attributes, a natural language model, and a scientific taxonomy as auxiliary information is promisingly better than the other methods for 16 test classes.
