SNIPER: Efficient Multi-Scale Training

NeurIPS 2018 Bharat SinghMahyar NajibiLarry S. Davis

We present SNIPER, an algorithm for performing efficient multi-scale training in instance level visual recognition tasks. Instead of processing every pixel in an image pyramid, SNIPER processes context regions around ground-truth instances (referred to as chips) at the appropriate scale... (read more)
