Encoder-Decoder with Atrous Separable Convolution for Semantic Image Segmentation

ECCV 2018 Liang-Chieh ChenYukun ZhuGeorge PapandreouFlorian SchroffHartwig Adam

Spatial pyramid pooling module or encode-decoder structure are used in deep neural networks for semantic segmentation task. The former networks are able to encode multi-scale contextual information by probing the incoming features with filters or pooling operations at multiple rates and multiple effective fields-of-view, while the latter networks can capture sharper object boundaries by gradually recovering the spatial information...
