Over-segmentation could be relieved by adopting a divisive image segmentation model. This also requires the binary classification of whether a segmented region corresponds to a single semantic object. In this paper, we propose a model to address this classification problem, by detecting if a region contains both "background" and "foreground" regions. When "background" and "foreground" both present, the region is considered to have multiple objects, otherwise it corresponds to a single object.
