Confidence Prediction for Lexicon-Free OCR

28 May 2018  ·  Noam Mor, Lior Wolf ·

Having a reliable accuracy score is crucial for real world applications of OCR, since such systems are judged by the number of false readings. Lexicon-based OCR systems, which deal with what is essentially a multi-class classification problem, often employ methods explicitly taking into account the lexicon, in order to improve accuracy... However, in lexicon-free scenarios, filtering errors requires an explicit confidence calculation. In this work we show two explicit confidence measurement techniques, and show that they are able to achieve a significant reduction in misreads on both standard benchmarks and a proprietary dataset. read more
