Strip Pooling: Rethinking Spatial Pooling for Scene Parsing

CVPR 2020 Qibin HouLi ZhangMing-Ming ChengJiashi Feng

Spatial pooling has been proven highly effective in capturing long-range contextual information for pixel-wise prediction tasks, such as scene parsing. In this paper, beyond conventional spatial pooling that usually has a regular shape of NxN, we rethink the formulation of spatial pooling by introducing a new pooling strategy, called strip pooling, which considers a long but narrow kernel, i.e., 1xN or Nx1...
