Panoptic Segmentation

The Cityscapes benchmark suite now includes panoptic segmentation [1], which combines pixel- and instance-level semantic segmentation. Our toolbox offers ground truth conversion and evaluation scripts. Our evaluation server and benchmark tables have been updated to support the new panoptic challenge.

We thank Alexander Kirillov for helping with the implementation.
