We propose two ways for learning the contour task together with the scene text detection: (1) as an auxiliary task and (2) as multi-task cascade. ... Extensive experiments with different benchmark datasets demonstrate that both designs improve the performance of a state-of-the-art scene text detector and that a multi-task cascade design achieves the ... Conclusion and Future Work We proposed a novel and effective framework for improving scene text detection. ...arXiv:1809.03050v2 fatcat:3itocgvgrfherj3v7f5bdy5qoi
