Visual Boundary Knowledge Translation for Foreground Segmentation

  title={Visual Boundary Knowledge Translation for Foreground Segmentation},
  author={Zunlei Feng and Lechao Cheng and Xinchao Wang and Xiang Wang and Ya Jie Liu and Xiangtong Du and Mingli Song},
When confronted with objects of unknown types in an image, humans can effortlessly and precisely tell their visual boundaries. This recognition mechanism and underlying generalization capability seem to contrast to state-of-the-art image segmentation networks that rely on large-scale categoryaware annotated training samples. In this paper, we make an attempt towards building models that explicitly account for visual boundary knowledge, in hope to reduce the training effort on segmenting unseen… Expand

Semantic Projection Network for Zero- and Few-Label Semantic Segmentation
The proposed semantic projection network (SPNet) achieves this goal by incorporating a class-level semantic information into any network designed for semantic segmentation, in an end-to-end manner. Expand
Not All Areas Are Equal: Transfer Learning for Semantic Segmentation via Hierarchical Region Selection
This paper considers transfer learning for semantic segmentation that aims to mitigate the gap between abundant synthetic data (source domain) and limited real data (target domain), and jointly learns hierarchical weighting networks and segmentation network in an end-to-end manner. Expand
CANet: Class-Agnostic Segmentation Networks With Iterative Refinement and Attentive Few-Shot Learning
Canet is presented, a class-agnostic segmentation network that performs few-shot segmentation on new classes with only a few annotated images available, and introduces an attention mechanism to effectively fuse information from multiple support examples under the setting of k-shot learning. Expand
Semantic Segmentation with Boundary Neural Fields
A Boundary Neural Field (BNF) is introduced, which is a global energy model integrating FCN predictions with boundary cues that is used to enhance semantic segment coherence and to improve object localization. Expand
SG-One: Similarity Guidance Network for One-Shot Semantic Segmentation
This article proposes a simple yet effective similarity guidance network to tackle the one-shot (SG-One) segmentation problem, aiming at predicting the segmentation mask of a query image with the reference to one densely labeled support image of the same category. Expand
PANet: Few-Shot Image Semantic Segmentation With Prototype Alignment
This paper tackles the challenging few-shot segmentation problem from a metric learning perspective and presents PANet, a novel prototype alignment network to better utilize the information of the support set to better generalize to unseen object categories. Expand
Universal Semi-Supervised Semantic Segmentation
This paper poses the novel problem of universal semi-supervised semantic segmentation and proposes a solution framework, to meet the dual needs of lower annotation and deployment costs, and introduces a novel feature alignment objective based on pixel-aware entropy regularization for the latter. Expand
Weakly- and Semi-Supervised Panoptic Segmentation
A weakly supervised model that jointly performs both semantic- and instance-segmentation and is able to segment both “thing” and “stuff” classes, and thus explain all the pixels in the image. Expand
Semi Supervised Semantic Segmentation Using Generative Adversarial Network
A semi-supervised framework is proposed – based on Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) – which consists of a generator network to provide extra training examples to a multi-class classifier, acting as discriminator in the GAN framework, that assigns sample a label y from the K possible classes or marks it as a fake sample (extra class).

Boundary-Aware Feature Propagation for Scene Segmentation
A boundary-aware feature propagation (BFP) module to harvest and propagate the local features within their regions isolated by the learned boundaries in the UAG-structured image and achieves new state-of-the-art segmentation performance on three challenging semantic segmentation datasets, i.e., PASCAL-Context, CamVid, and Cityscapes.
