[Objective] This paper introduces the few-shot image semantic segmentation methods systematically and comprehensively, as a reference to the design of the few-shot segmentation algorithm.[Methods] The metric-based meta-learning method is employed to perform the few-shot segmentation tasks. According to whether the metric tool is learnable, the few-shot segmentation algorithms are divided into prototype-based methods and parameter-based methods. This paper describes the advantages and disadvantages of both algorithms. [R-esults]Some classical and recent research works about the few-shot image semantic segmentation are analyzed in detail, together with an introduction of the main applications of the few-shot segmentation algorithm. [Conclusions] Hereinafter, the future development direction and trend of few-shot image segmentation are discussed, and its key problems and challenges are analyzed.
