Abstract

Tremendous efforts have been made to improve mask localization accuracy in instance segmentation. Modern instance segmentation methods relying on fully convolutional networks perform pixel-wise classification, which ignores object boundaries and shapes, leading coarse and indistinct mask prediction results and imprecise localization. To remedy these problems, we propose a conceptually simple yet effective Boundary-preserving Mask R-CNN (BMask R-CNN) to leverage object boundary information to improve mask localization accuracy. BMask R-CNN contains a boundary-preserving mask head in which object boundary and mask are mutually learned via feature fusion blocks. As a result,the mask prediction results are better aligned with object boundaries. Without bells and whistles, BMask R-CNN outperforms Mask R-CNN by a considerable margin on the COCO dataset; in the Cityscapes dataset,there are more accurate boundary groundtruths available, so that BMaskR-CNN obtains remarkable improvements over Mask R-CNN. Besides, it is not surprising to observe that BMask R-CNN obtains more obvious improvement when the evaluation criterion requires better localization (e.g., AP75)

Results

Left: AP curves of Mask R-CNN and BMask R-CNN under different mask IoU thresholds on the COCO val2017 set, the improvement becomes more significant when IoU increases. Right: Visualizations of Mask R-CNN and BMask R-CNN. BMask R-CNN can output more precise boundaries and accurate masks than Mask R-CNN.
