Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose an image semantic segmentation model which is trained from image-level labeled images. The proposed model starts with superpixel segmenting, and features of the superpixels are extracted by trained CNN. We introduce a superpixel-based graph followed by applying the graph partition method to group correlated superpixels into clusters. For the acquisition of inter-label correlations between the image-level labels in dataset, we not only utilize label co-occurrence statistics but also exploit visual contextual cues simultaneously. At last, we formulate the task of mapping appropriate image-level labels to the detected clusters as a problem of convex minimization. Experimental results on MSRC-21 dataset and LableMe dataset show that the proposed method has a better performance than most of the weakly supervised methods and is even comparable to fully supervised methods.
