In September 2021, the 16th International Conference on Document Analysis and Recognition (ICDAR) will take place in Lausanne, Switzerland. For the PERO project, we sent three papers to this conference and all them were also accepted.
The first article deals with text line detection using a neural network model called ParseNet. The second article focuses on the ability to switch between different outputs of a neural network-based text recognizer using a Transcription-Style block. The last article presents a strategy for effective use of large amounts of unannotated data from a target domain when training a text recognizer.
