DeepLab: Deep Labelling for Semantic Image Segmentation

DeepLab is a state-of-art deep learning model for semantic image segmentation, where the goal is to assign semantic labels (e.g., person, dog, cat and so on) to every pixel in the input image. Current implementation includes the following features:

  1. DeepLabv1 [1]: We use atrous convolution to explicitly control the resolution at which feature responses are computed within Deep Convolutional Neural Networks.

  2. DeepLabv2 [2]: We use atrous spatial pyramid pooling (ASPP) to robustly segment objects at multiple scales with filters at multiple sampling rates and effective fields-of-views.

  3. DeepLabv3 [3]: We augment the ASPP module with image-level feature [5, 6] to capture longer range information. We also include batch normalization [7] parameters to facilitate the training. In particular, we applying atrous convolution to extract output features at different output strides during training and evaluation, which efficiently enables training BN at output stride = 16 and attains a high performance at output stride = 8 during evaluation.

  4. DeepLabv3+ [4]: We extend DeepLabv3 to include a simple yet effective decoder module to refine the segmentation results especially along object boundaries. Furthermore, in this encoder-decoder structure one can arbitrarily control the resolution of extracted encoder features by atrous convolution to trade-off precision and runtime.

In the current implementation, we support adopting the following network backbones:

  1. MobileNetv2 [8]: A fast network structure designed for mobile devices.

  2. Xception [9, 10]: A powerful network structure intended for server-side deployment.

This directory contains our TensorFlow [11] implementation. We provide codes allowing users to train the model, evaluate results in terms of mIOU (mean intersection-over-union), and visualize segmentation results. We use PASCAL VOC 2012 [12] and Cityscapes [13] semantic segmentation benchmarks as an example in the code.
