We’ve just launched a new feature for creating Instance Segmentation projects on Roboflow!
You can now upload and export in COCO segmentation format, as well as augment and label data and see Dataset Health Check statistics for instance segmentation.
Instance segmentation, also known as image segmentation, is the computer vision task of recognizing objects in images along with their associated shape. It is an extension of object detection where each prediction also includes a shape as opposed to just a bounding box defined by a center point, width, and height.
With instance segmentation, your application can determine the number of objects in an image, the classifications, and their outline.
