Confidence Propagation Cluster: Unleash Full Potential of Object Detectors


a better alternative for NMS and soft-nms; replacing the NMS, soft-NMS with Confidence Propagation Cluster for object detectors to achieve better accuracy and fully parallelization


build graph models from the detected boxes, and conduct confidence message propagation (penalize redundant boxes and enhance true positives simultaneously) iteratively until convergence


high accuracies observed on various detectors compared with nms and soft-nms, even for centernet (replacing max-pool with CP-cluster)
