Segment My Object: A Pipeline to Extract Segmented Objects in Images based on Labels or Bounding Boxes

Abstract

We propose a pipeline (SegMyO – Segment my object) to automatically extract segmented objects in images based on given labels and / or bounding boxes. When providing the expected label, our system looks for the closest label in the list of outputs, using a measure of semantic similarity. And when providing the bounding box, it looks for the output object with the best coverage, based on several geometric criteria. Associated with a semantic segmentation model trained on a similar dataset, or a good region proposal algorithm, this pipeline provides a simple solution to segment efficiently a dataset without requiring specific training, but also to the problem of weakly-supervised segmentation. This is particularly useful to segment public datasets available with weak object annotations (e.g., bounding boxes and labels from a detection, labels from a caption) coming from an algorithm or from manual annotation. An experimental study conducted on the PASCAL VOC 2012 dataset shows that these simple criteria embedded in SegMyO allow to select the proposal with the best IoU score in most cases, and so to get the best of the pre-segmentation.
