Differential Treatment for Stuff and Things: A Simple Unsupervised Domain Adaptation Method for Semantic Segmentation

Introduction

We consider the problem of unsupervised domain adaptation for semantic segmentation by easing the domain shift between the source domain (synthetic data) and the target domain (real data) in this work. State-of-the-art approaches prove that performing semantic-level alignment is helpful in tackling the domain shift issue. Based on the observation that stuff categories usually share similar appearances across images of different domains while things (i.e. object instances) have much larger differences, we propose to improve the semantic-level alignment with different strategies for stuff regions and for things: 1) for the stuff categories, we generate feature representation for each class and conduct the alignment operation from the target domain to the source domain; 2) for the thing categories, we generate feature representation for each individual instance and encourage the instance in the target domain to align with the most similar one in the source domain. In this way, the individual differences within thing categories will also be considered to alleviate over-alignment. In addition to our proposed method, we further reveal the reason why the current adversarial loss is often unstable in minimizing the distribution discrepancy and show that our method can help ease this issue by minimizing the most similar stuff and instance features between the source and the target domains. We conduct extensive experiments in two unsupervised domain adaptation tasks, i.e. GTA5 to Cityscapes and SYNTHIA to Cityscapes, and achieve the new state-of-the-art segmentation accuracy.

Training framework

Prerequisites

Download our repo:

git clone https://github.com/SHI-Labs/Unsupervised-Domain-Adaptation-with-Differential-Treatment.git
cd Unsupervised-Domain-Adaptation-with-Differential-Treatment

Data preparation

Download Cityscapes, CycleGAN transferred GTA5 and gta5 labels. Symbolic link them under data folder:

ln -s path_to_Cityscapes_folder ./data/Cityscapes
ln -s path_to_gta5_deeplab_folder ./data/gta5_deeplab
ln -s path_to_gta5_labels_folder ./data/gta5_deeplab/labels

Environment setup

The code is built on Ubuntu 18.04 environment with CUDA 10.0 and cuDNN 7.6.5, and it is trained and tested with a Nvidia Rtx 2080Ti GPU.

Create a new conda environment and install dependencies:

conda create -n simenv python=3.7
conda activate simenv
pip install -r requirements.txt

Please install apex from the official repo.

Train

First phase

Train the SIM model:

python train_sim.py

Second phase

Generate the sudo labels for Cityscapes training set:

python SSL.py

Train SIM with self-supervised learning:

python train_sim_ssl.py

Test

Test the final model (trained model):

./eva.sh snapshots_ssl/BestGTA5.pth

Test the SIM model without self-supervised training (trained model):

./eva.sh snapshots/BestGTA5.pth

Results

Comparison to the state-of-the-art results of adapting GTA5 to Cityscapes.

Comparison to the state-of-the-art results of adapting SYNTHIA to Cityscapes.

Visual results

Visualization of the segmentation results.
