Image segmentation is a key task in computer vision and image processing with important applications such as scene understanding, medical image analysis, robotic perception, video surveillance, augmented reality, and image compression, among others, and numerous segmentation algorithms are found in the literature. Against this backdrop, the broad success of Deep Learning (DL) has prompted the development of new image segmentation approaches leveraging DL models. We provide a comprehensive…
