  • Publication number: 20220292706
    Abstract: An object count estimation apparatus (2000) includes a first feature extraction network (2042), a first counting network (2044), a second feature extraction network (2062), and a second counting network (2064). The first feature extraction network (2042) generates a first feature map (20) by performing convolution processing on a target image (10). The first counting network (2044) estimates the number of target objects having a size included in a first predetermined range by performing processing on the first feature map (20). The second feature extraction network (2062) generates a second feature map (30) by performing convolution processing on the first feature map (20). The second existence estimation network (2064) estimates the number of target objects having a size included in a second predetermined range by performing processing on the second feature map (30). A size included in the first predetermined range is smaller than a size included in the second predetermined range.
