Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) Although millions of presentation slides are created every day in business and academia, there are only a limited number of support systems that are helpful to assess the slides. In this study, a bimodal neural network, using visual and structural features, is proposed to identify the design problem of presentation slides. For such a purpose, over two thousand slides were collected for training the model. We summarized ten checkpoints, which are common problems in slide design. The dataset faces an imbalanced distribution, because only a small part of the samples had corresponding design problems. To address the class imbalance issue, several sampling methods are applied to improve the prediction performance. Furthermore, we also use transfer and multi-task learning to enhance the bimodal neural network. The optimal combination of these machine-learning methods helps the proposed network achieve an average accuracy of 81.79%.
