Weakly supervised food image segmentation using class activation maps
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 IEEE. Food image segmentation plays a crucial role in image-based dietary assessment and management. Successful methods for object segmentation generally rely on a large amount of labeled data on the pixel level. However, such training data are not yet available for food images and expensive to obtain. In this paper, we describe a weakly supervised convolutional neural network (CNN) which only requires image level annotation. We propose a graph based segmentation method which uses the class activation maps trained on food datasets as a top-down saliency model. We evaluate the proposed method for both classification and segmentation tasks. We achieve competitive classification accuracy compared to the previously reported results.
