Image segmentation is referred to as one of the most important processes of image processing. Image segmentation is the technique of dividing or partitioning an image into parts, called segments. It is mostly useful for applications like image compression or object recognition because for these types of applications, it is inefficient to process the whole image. So, image segmentation is used to segment the parts from the image for further processing. Semantic image segmentation is a vast area for computer vision and machine learning researchers. Many vision applications need accurate and efficient image segmentation and segment classification mechanisms for assessing the visual contents and perform real-time decision making. In this paper, we recommend conditional random field (CRF) based framework for weakly supervised semantic segmentation. First merging super pixels into large pieces and use these pieces for further use to identify objects. The pieces from all the training images are gathered and associated with appropriate semantic labels by CRF. In the case of testing, by using the potential energy of each piece merged from super pixels are compare with piece library. For results, we use commonly used the dataset for image segmentation is MSRC-21 and VOC 2012 with state-of-art.

Important Announcements

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
