Real-time Scene Text Detection with Differentiable Binarization

20 Nov 2019 Minghui Liao Zhaoyi Wan Cong Yao Kai Chen Xiang Bai

Recently, segmentation-based methods are quite popular in scene text detection, as the segmentation results can more accurately describe scene text of various shapes such as curve text. However, the post-processing of binarization is essential for segmentation-based detection, which converts probability maps produced by a segmentation method into bounding boxes/regions of text...
