Authors: Xiao Yang, Dafang He, Zihan Zhou, Daniel Kifer, C. Lee Giles

Description: This method is based on the paper "Learning to Read Irregular Text with Attention Mechanisms". Several changes are made in this implementation including: 1) ResNet-like backbone CNN; 2) learning rate schedule; 3) schedule sampling instead of teacher forcing when training decoder. More details can be see the the tech report later.
