This paper proposes a Bi-Directional Cascade Network for edge detection. By introducing a bi-directional cascade structure to enforce each layer to focus on a specific scale, BDCN trains each network layer with a layer-specific supervision. To enrich the multi-scale representations learned with a shallow network, we further introduce a Scale Enhancement Module (SEM). Here are the code for this paper.
