Panel议题:

1. 现在语义分割在很多数据集上的结果都已经很高,语义分割还存在什么难题呢,还有哪些新的研究方向?

2. 现在语义分割、实例分割、全景分割都取得很好的结果,传统的一般图像分割与超像素分割的工作越来越少,是否还有很大研究价值?

3. 自监督学习是现在的一个研究热点,自监督学习在语义分割方面的进展如何?

4. 语义分割领域当前的工作比较趋同,大家都在设计一些模块提取上下文信息、强化特征,那么各位老师如何看待这个现象?语义分割下一步应该怎么走呢?

5. 最近Transformer大热,请问transformer相比于CNN有什么优缺点呢?如何应用于语义分割领域呢?

6. 最近有些工作开始探索在dense prediction任务中的应用,请问各位老师对于self-supervised/unsupervised learning在语义分割领域的应用有什么看法呢?

7. 当前语义分割算法主要基于FCN架构,对标object detection相当于是anchor-free的一阶段做法,那么语义分割是否有可能存在其他的类似anchor-based或者二阶段这样的架构呢?


*欢迎大家在下方留言提出主题相关问题,主持人和panel嘉宾会从中选择若干热度高的问题加入panel议题!

报告摘要:

Instance segmentation is one of the fundamental vision tasks. I will present several new, simple approaches to instance segmentation in images. Compared to many other dense prediction tasks, e.g., semantic segmentation, it is the arbitrary number of instances that have made instance segmentation much more challenging. In order to predict a mask for each instance, mainstream approaches either follow the `detect-then-segment' strategy as used by Mask R-CNN, or predict category masks first then use clustering techniques to group pixels into individual instances.  Recently, fully convolutional instance segmentation methods have drawn much attention as they are often simpler and more efficient than two-stage approaches like Mask R-CNN. To date, almost all such approaches fall behind the two-stage Mask R-CNN method in mask precision when models have similar computation complexity, leaving great room for improvement. First, I will present BlendMask, achieving improved mask prediction by effectively combining instance-level information with semantic information with lower-level fine-granularity. Second, we view the task of instance segmentation from a completely new perspective by introducing the notion of "instance categories", which assigns categories to each pixel within an instance according to the instance's location and size, thus nicely converting instance mask segmentation into a classification-solvable problem. Last, I will present a simple yet effective instance segmentation framework, termed CondInst (conditional convolutions for instance segmentation). CondInst solves instance segmentation from a new perspective. Instead of using instance-wise ROIs as inputs to a network of fixed weights, CondInst employs dynamic instance-aware networks, conditioned on instances, thus eliminating ROI operations. Experiments on the COCO dataset show great promises of the proposed methods.

报告人简介:

Jingdong Wang is a Senior Principal Research Manager with the Visual Computing Group at Microsoft Research Asia (Beijing, China). He received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees from the Department of Automation at Tsinghua University in 2001 and 2004, respectively, and the PhD degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong, in 2007. His areas of interest include neural network design, human pose estimation, large-scale indexing, and person re-identification. He is/was an Associate Editor of the IEEE TPAMI, the IEEE TMM and the IEEE TCSVT, and is an area chair of several leading Computer Vision and AI conferences, such as CVPR, ICCV, ECCV, ACM MM, IJCAI, and AAAI. He was elected as an IAPR Fellow, an ACM Distinguished Member, and an Industrial Distinguished Lecturer Program (iDLP) speaker of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society.

His representative works include deep high-resolution network (HRNet), interleaved group convolutions, discriminative regional feature integration (DRFI) for supervised saliency detection, neighborhood graph search (NGS, SPTAG) for large scale similarity search, composite quantization for compact coding, and so on. He has shipped a number of technologies to Microsoft products, including Bing search, Bing Ads, Cognitive service, and XiaoIce Chatbot. The NGS algorithm developed in his group serves as a basic building block in many Microsoft products. In the Bing image search engine, the key color filter function is based on the salient object algorithm developed in his group. He has pioneered in the development of a commercial color-sketch image search system.

报告摘要:

Semantic segmentation is a fundamental and challenging visual recognition problem. It aims to assign a category to each pixel in an image. Various solutions have been developed mainly from two aspects. One is to improve the spatial granularity, e.g. applying dilated convolutions to ResNet or upsampling the low-resolution representation output by ResNet. The other is to explore the context, e.g. using pyramid pooling module (PPM) in PSPNet or atrous spatial pyramid pooling (ASPP) in DeepLab for combining multi-scale information. I will introduce our two research works handling the two issues. The first one is the high-resolution network (HRNet) for learning spatially fine-grained and semantically strong representations. The HRNet is designed from scratch other than from a classification network (e.g., ResNet) and maintains high-resolution presentations through the forward process with repeated multi-scale fusions. The second one is object-contextual representation (OCR). It starts from the intuition that the label of a pixel is the category of the object/stuff the pixel belongs to. The OCR approach aims to aggregate the representations of the pixels lying in the same object class by differentiating them from the pixels lying in different object classes. Experiments show that the HRNet and OCR approaches outperform the corresponding competitors. Together with a boundary refinement scheme, HRNet + OCR wins the first place in semantic segmentation on cityscapes. In addition, I will give a short introduction to our two CVPR 2021 papers about semantic segmentation: Light-HRNet: A Lightweight High-Resolution Network and Semi-Supervised Semantic Segmentation with Cross Pseudo Supervision. The codes are available at https://github.com/HRNet/.
