Semantic image segmentation is a very important computer vision task with several applications in autonomous systems perception, robotic vision and medical imaging. Recent semantic image segmentation methods rely on deep neural networks and aim to assign a specific class label to each pixel of the input image. This lecture overviews the topic and addresses some of the semantic image segmentation challenges, notably: Deep semantic Image Segmentation architectures. Skip connections. U-nets. BiSeNet. Semantic image segmentation performance, computational complexity and generalization.

Crowd region segmentation.

Road scene segmentation.
