Reading: DPN — Deep Parsing Network (Semantic Segmentation)

In this story, Deep Parsing Network (DPN), by The Chinese University of Hong Kong, is briefly presented. In this paper:

  • DPN extends a CNN to model unary terms and additional layers are devised to approximate the mean field (MF) algorithm for pairwise terms.
  • Some previous approaches, non-deep-learning post processing is performed to refine the result. With the network approximating the pairwise terms, the non-deep-learning post processing stage is not needed.

This is a paper in 2015 ICCV (over 500 citations) as well as in 2018 TPAMI (over 60 citations). (Sik-Ho Tsang @ Medium)
