FreeAnchor: Learning to Match Anchors for Visual Object Detection

NeurIPS 2019 Xiaosong ZhangFang WanChang LiuRongrong JiQixiang Ye

Modern CNN-based object detectors assign anchors for ground-truth objects under the restriction of object-anchor Intersection-over-Unit (IoU). In this study, we propose a learning-to-match approach to break IoU restriction, allowing objects to match anchors in a flexible manner... (read more)
