Efficient and Accurate Arbitrary-Shaped Text Detection with Pixel Aggregation Network

open-mmlab/mmocr ICCV 2019

Recently, some methods have been proposed to tackle arbitrary-shaped text detection, but they rarely take the speed of the entire pipeline into consideration, which may fall short in practical applications. In this paper, we propose an efficient and accurate arbitrary-shaped text detector, termed Pixel Aggregation Network (PAN), which is equipped with a low computational-cost segmentation head and a learnable post-processing.

Shape Robust Text Detection with Progressive Scale Expansion Network

open-mmlab/mmocr CVPR 2019

Due to the fact that there are large geometrical margins among the minimal scale kernels, our method is effective to split the close text instances, making it easier to use segmentation-based methods to detect arbitrary-shaped text instances.
