Detecting Oriented Text in Natural Images by Linking Segments (https://arxiv.org/abs/1703.06520).
The project is written in Python3 and C++ and relies on TensorFlow v1.0 or newer. We have only tested it on Ubuntu 14.04. If you are using other Linux versions, we suggest using Docker. CMake (version >= 2.8) is required to compile the C++ code. Install TensorFlow (GPU-enabled) by following the instructions on https://www.tensorflow.org/install/. The project requires no other Python packages.
On Ubuntu 14.04, install the required packages by
sudo apt-get install cmake sudo pip install --upgrade tensorflow-gpu
The project uses
manage.py to execute commands for compiling code and running training and testing programs. For installation, execute
in the project directory to compile the custom TensorFlow operators written in C++. To remove the compiled binaries, execute
./manage.py <exp-directory> train
