We propose bookworm continual learning (BCL), a setting combining continual updates and semantic descriptions to infer unseen classes. We address BCL with the bidirectional imagination (BImag), a feature generation framework that generates synthetic features for both past and future classes. We observe that conditioning the feature generator on attributes can actually harm the continual learning ability, and propose two variants to alleviate this problem.
