Description: A sequence tagging approach classifying tokens in all text boxes.
We used the pre-trained BERT model and finetuned the model to classify all tokens into 5 classes such as "none", "company", "address", "date", and "total". In order to feed a single text sequence, we identified lines in a receipt, sorted text boxes at each line, and merged them line by line.

Description: This is a method that tackles the key information extraction problem as a character-wise classification problem with a simple stacked bidirectional LSTM. The method first formats the text from an image into a single sequence. The sequence is then fed into a two-layer bidirectional LSTM to produce a classification label from 5 classes - 4 key information category and one "others" - for each character. The method is simple enough with just a two-layer bidirectional LSTM implemented in PyTorch, and proves to sufficient in understanding the context of a receipt text and outputting highly accurate results.
