Exploring Multi-Tasking Learning in Document Attribute Classification

30 Aug 2021  ·  Tanmoy Mondal, Abhijit Das, Zuheng Ming ·

In this work, we adhere to explore a Multi-Tasking learning (MTL) based network to perform document attribute classification such as the font type, font size, font emphasis and scanning resolution classification of a document image. To accomplish these tasks, we operate on either segmented word level or on uniformed size patches randomly cropped out of the document. Furthermore, a hybrid convolution neural network (CNN) architecture "MTL+MI", which is based on the combination of MTL and Multi-Instance (MI) of patch and word is used to accomplish joint learning for the classification of the same document attributes. The contribution of this paper are three fold: firstly, based on segmented word images and patches, we present a MTL based network for the classification of a full document image. Secondly, we propose a MTL and MI (using segmented words and patches) based combined CNN architecture ("MTL+MI") for the classification of same document attributes. Thirdly, based on the multi-tasking classifications of the words and/or patches, we propose an intelligent voting system which is based on the posterior probabilities of each words and/or patches to perform the classification of document's attributes of complete document image.
