Instance semantic segmentation aims to detect objects in images outputting both bounding box and segmentation mask. Recent deep learning methods to tackle this problem leverage modern detection and semantic segmentation technique achieving impressive results. However, costly semantic mask labels limit the applications. In this talk, we discuss weak supervised learning for image segmentation and its application to food image recognition tasks. Training single-model instance segmentation DCNN with only bounding box annotations enables state-of-art instance segmentation methods to apply to much more image domains like foods, which provides deeper understanding of food images.
