Panoptic Segmentation

Panoptic segmentation can be expressed as the combination of semantic segmentation and instance segmentation where each instance of an object in the image is segregated and the object’s identity is predicted.

Panoptic segmentation algorithms find large-scale applicability in popular tasks like self-driving cars where a huge amount of information about the immediate surroundings must be captured with the help of a stream of images.
