© 2019 IEEE.In spite of recent enormous success of deep convolutional networks in object detection, they require a large amount of bounding box annotations, which are often time-consuming and error-prone to obtain. To make better use of given limited labels, we propose a novel object detection approach that takes advantage of both multi-task learning (MTL) and self-supervised learning (SSL). We propose a set of auxiliary tasks that help improve the accuracy of object detection. They create their own labels by recycling the bounding box labels (i.e. annotations of the main task) in an SSL manner, and are jointly trained with the object detection model in an MTL way. Our approach is integrable with any region proposal based detection models. We empirically validate that our approach effectively improves detection performance on various architectures and datasets. We test two state-of-the-art region proposal object detectors, including Faster R-CNN and R-FCN, with three CNN backbones of ResNet-101, Inception-ResNet-v2, and MobileNet on two benchmark datasets of PASCAL VOC and COCO.
