报告题目：Semantic Image Segmentation with Deep Learning: Conditional Random Fields as Recurrent Neural Networks [PPT & Video]
Image understanding requires not only object recognition, but also object delineation. This shape recovery task is challenging because of two reasons. First, the necessity of learning a good representation of the visual inputs. Second, the need to account for contextual information across the image, such as edges and appearance consistency. Deep Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs) are successful at the former, but have limited capacity to delineate visual objects. We will present a framework that extends the capabilities of deep learning techniques to tackle this issue, obtaining cutting edge results in semantic image segmentation (i.e. detecting and delineating objects).
A live demo of the system we will be presenting is available at: http://crfasrnn.torr.vision.
