Abstract

In recent years, deep learning-based methods have shown promising results in computer vision area. However, a common deep learning model requires a large amount of labeled data, which is labor-intensive to collect and label. Whats more, the model can be ruined due to the domain shift between training data and testing data. Text recognition is a broadly studied field in computer vision and suffers from the same problems noted above due to the diversity of fonts and complicated backgrounds. In this paper, we focus on the text recognition problem and mainly make three contributions toward these problems. First, we collect a multi-source domain adaptation dataset for text recognition, including five different domains with over five million images, which is the first multi-domain text recognition dataset to our best knowledge. Secondly, we propose a new method called Meta Self-Learning, which combines the self-learning method with the meta-learning paradigm and achieves a better recognition result under the scene of multi domain adaptation. Thirdly, extensive experiments are conducted on the dataset to provide a benchmark and also show the effectiveness of our method.

Data Prepare

Download the dataset from here.

Before using the raw data, you need to convert it to lmdb dataset.

python create_lmdb_dataset.py --inputPath data/ --gtFile data/gt.txt --outputPath result/

The data folder should be organized below

data
 train_label.txt
 imgs
     000000001.png
     000000002.png
     000000003.png
     ...

The format of train_label.txt should be {imagepath}\t{label}\n For example,

imgs/000000001.png Tiredness
imgs/000000002.png kills
imgs/000000003.png A

Requirements

  • Python == 3.7
  • Pytorch == 1.7.0
  • torchvision == 0.8.1
  • Linux or OSX
  • NVIDIA GPU + CUDA CuDNN (CPU mode and CUDA without CuDNN may work with minimal modification, but untested)
