News - Video Text Reading Competition for Dense and Small Text


QA Types made public

We are glad to announce that we have make public the question types for Single-Page DocVQA and InfographicsVQA datasets. However, we won't release it for the test sets, as we believe that this should not be used as any kind of help at the time of answering the questions, but to better interpret the method's results. In addition, the public evaluation tool in the RRC platform already provides this information.

Therefore, we have released the question types only for training and validation set of the SP-DocVQA, and validation set of InfographicsVQA. You can find the updated links in the downloads section.

We hope this helps you in your research,

The DocVQA team
