i don’t understand exactly approximate joint training method.
i know RPN and detector merged as a one network during training.
the forward path is started pre trained conv network and pass from RPN and finally arrives to fast rcnn layers. loss is computed :
RPN classification loss + RPN regression loss + Detection classification loss + Detection bounding-box regression loss.
but where is it from the backpropagation path? is it from detector and RPN and finally pretrained convnet?
in this case how derivation performed in decoder section in RPN? offcets produced with 1x1 reg-conv layer in RPN is translated to proposals in decoder.
