AdaptIS: Adaptive Instance Selection Network

This codebase implements the system described in the paper "AdaptIS: Adaptive Instance Selection Network", Konstantin Sofiiuk, Olga Barinova, Anton Konushin. Accepted at ICCV 2019. The code performs instance segmentation and can be also used for panoptic segmentation.

[UPDATE] We have released PyTorch implementation of our algorithm (now it supports only ToyV1 and ToyV2 datasets on single gpu). See pytorch branch.


ToyV2 dataset

alt text

We generated an even more complex synthetic dataset to show the main advantage of our algorithm over other detection-based instance segmentation algorithms. The new dataset contains 25000 images for training and 1000 images each for validation and testing. Each image has resolution of 128x128 and can contain from 12 to 52 highly overlapping objects.

You can download the ToyV2 dataset from here. You can test and visualize the model trained on this dataset using this notebook. You can download pretrained model from here.

ToyV1 dataset

We used the ToyV1 dataset for our experiments in the paper. We generated 12k samples for the toy dataset (10k for training and 2k for testing). The dataset has two versions:

  • original contains generated samples without augmentations;
  • augmented contains generated samples with fixed augmentations (random noise and blur).

We trained our model on the original/train part and tested it on the augmented/test part. You can download the toy dataset from here. The repository provides an example of testing and metric evalutation for the toy dataset. You can test and visualize trained model on the toy dataset using provided Jupyter Notebook. You can download pretrained model from here.

Setting up a development environment

AdaptIS is built using Python 3.6 and relies on the recent version of MXNet. The easiest way to install MXNet is through pip. The following command installs all necessary packages:

pip3 install -r requirements.txt

Some of the inference code is written using Cython, you must compile the code before testing:

make -C ./adaptis/inference/cython_utils


You can train model for the ToyV2 dataset by the following command:

python3 --batch-size=14 --workers=2 --gpus=0 --dataset-path=<toy-dataset-path>

You can train model for the toy dataset (original from the paper) by the following command:

python3 --batch-size=14 --workers=2 --gpus=0 --dataset-path=<toy-dataset-path>

To train ResNet-50 model for Cityscapes use the script:

python3 --batch-size=8 --workers=2 --gpus=0,1 --dataset-path=<cityscapes-path>
