Object detection algorithms have advanced rapidly during the last decade, especially after realizing the efficiency of Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) for feature extraction. However, it is a time-consuming and labor-intensive task to annotate the objects’ bounding boxes as ground truth data that is necessary to efficiently train the CNN for object detection and recognition tasks. We propose a semi-supervised cascaded bounding box labeling strategy for fast and efficient data annotation for large-scale ground-truth generation. We observed around 80% reduction of workload in data annotation by employing our semi-supervised ground-truth generation method on MS COCO dataset.
