Kaiwen Duan, Lingxi Xie, Honggang Qi, Song Bai, Qingming Huang, Qi Tian
2020 arXiv   pre-print
This paper proposes a novel anchor-free, two-stage framework which first extracts a number of object proposals by finding potential corner keypoint combinations and then assigns a class label to each proposal  ...  Our approach, dubbed Corner Proposal Network (CPN), enjoys the ability to detect objects of various scales and also avoids being confused by a large number of false-positive proposals.  ...  We focus on two important choices of object detection, namely, whether to use anchor-based or anchor-free methods for proposal extraction, and whether to use one-stage or two-stage methods for determining  ...
