Paper Conference Demo Demo PyPI Downloads

Official Implementation of Donut and SynthDoG

Introduction

Donut ๐Ÿฉ, Document understanding transformer, is a new method of document understanding that utilizes an OCR-free end-to-end Transformer model. Donut does not require off-the-shelf OCR engines/APIs, yet it shows state-of-the-art performances on various visual document understanding tasks, such as visual document classification or information extraction (a.k.a. document parsing). In addition, we present SynthDoG ๐Ÿถ, Synthetic Document Generator, that helps the model pre-training to be flexible on vairous languages and domains.

Our academic paper, which describes our method in detail and provides full experimental results and analyses, can be found here:

Getting Started

Data

This repository assumes the following structure of dataset:

> tree dataset_name
dataset_name
โ”œโ”€โ”€ test
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ metadata.jsonl
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path0}
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path1}
โ”‚             .
โ”‚             .
โ”œโ”€โ”€ train
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ metadata.jsonl
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path0}
โ”‚   โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path1}
โ”‚             .
โ”‚             .
โ””โ”€โ”€ validation
    โ”œโ”€โ”€ metadata.jsonl
    โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path0}
    โ”œโ”€โ”€ {image_path1}
              .
              .

> cat dataset_name/test/metadata.jsonl
{"file_name": {image_path0}, "ground_truth": "{\"gt_parse\": {ground_truth_parse}, ... {other_metadata_not_used} ... }"}
{"file_name": {image_path1}, "ground_truth": "{\"gt_parse\": {ground_truth_parse}, ... {other_metadata_not_used} ... }"}
     .
     .
  • The structure of metadata.jsonl file is in JSON Lines text format, i.e., .jsonl. Each line consists of
    • file_name : relative path to the image file.
    • ground_truth : string format (json dumped), the dictionary contains either gt_parse or gt_parses. Other fields (metadata) can be added to the dictionary but will not be used.
  • donut interprets all tasks as a JSON prediction problem. As a result, all donut model training share a same pipeline. For training and inference, the only thing to do is preparing gt_parse or gt_parses for the task in format described below.

For Document Classification

The gt_parse follows the format of {"class" : {class_name}}, for example, {"class" : "scientific_report"} or {"class" : "presentation"}.

  • Google colab demo is available here.

For Document Information Extraction

The gt_parse is a JSON object that contains full information of the document image, for example, the JSON object for a receipt may look like {"menu" : [{"nm": "ICE BLACKCOFFEE", "cnt": "2", ...}, ...], ...}.

  • More examples are available at CORD dataset.
  • Google colab demo is available here.
  • Gradio web demo is available here.

For Document Visual Question Answering

The gt_parses follows the format of [{"question" : {question_sentence}, "answer" : {answer_candidate_1}}, {"question" : {question_sentence}, "answer" : {answer_candidate_2}}, ...], for example, [{"question" : "what is the model name?", "answer" : "donut"}, {"question" : "what is the model name?", "answer" : "document understanding transformer"}].

  • DocVQA Task1 has multiple answers, hence gt_parses should be a list of dictionary that contains a pair of question and answer.
  • Google colab demo is available here.

For (Psuedo) Text Reading Task

The gt_parse looks like {"text_sequence" : "word1 word2 word3 ... "}

  • This task is also a pre-training task of Donut model.
  • You can use our SynthDoG ๐Ÿถ to generate synthetic images for the text reading task with proper gt_parse. See ./synthdog/README.md for details.
