Instance Segmentation For Autonomous Segmentation Of Scientific Images With Mask R-cnn

Total time needed: ~3 hours
Instance segmentation is an advanced form of segmentation which differentiates between individual objects of the same class. It is a useful technique when classical thresholding/watershed algorithms fail to segment individual instances due to overlap or unclear particle boundaries. This list will give a crash course on applying this technique to scientific images to measure populations of samples.
Potential Use Cases
Particle size distribution, detailed morphology information of each individual object, and resolving individual objects that may overlap.
