Computer Vision task

Complete the computer vision task to join the hackathon finals. Finalists will be the contestants with the most accurate solutions.


To make something interesting with user photos, these users first need to be found and selected. Solve the problem of semantic image segmentation: separate the users from the background in their photos.
