Despite of the success of convolutional neural networks for semantic image segmentation, CNNs cannot be used for many applications due to limited computational resources. Even efficient approaches based on random forests are not efficient enough for real-time performance in some cases. In this work, we propose an approach based on superpixels and label propagation that reduces the runtime of a random forest approach by factor 192 while increasing the segmentation accuracy. 
Semi-supervised Semantic Mapping Through Label Propagation with Semantic Texture Meshes
TLDR
This work proposes an efficient method of establishing consensus between individual segmentations by iteratively retraining semantic segmentation with the information stored within the map and using the retrained segmentation to re-fuse the semantics.
Uncertainty Modeling of Contextual-Connections Between Tracklets for Unconstrained Video-Based Face Recognition
TLDR
The Uncertainty-Gated Graph (UGG), which conducts graph-based identity propagation between tracklets, which are represented by nodes in a graph, is proposed, which explicitly models the uncertainty of the contextual connections by adaptively updating the weights of the edge gates according to the identity distributions of the nodes during inference.
Person Search in Videos with One Portrait Through Visual and Temporal Links
TLDR
A novel framework is proposed, which takes into account the identity invariance along a tracklet, thus allowing person identities to be propagated via both the visual and the temporal links and remarkably outperforms mainstream person re-id methods.
