  • Patent number: 11928790
    Abstract: An object included in a low-resolution image can be recognized with a high degree of precision. An acquisition unit acquires, from a query image, an increased-resolution image, which is acquired by increasing the resolution of the query image, by performing pre-learned acquisition processing for increasing the resolution of an image. A feature extraction unit, using the increased-resolution image as input, extracts a feature vector of the increased-resolution image by performing pre-learned extraction processing for extracting a feature vector of an image. A recognition unit recognizes an object captured on the increased-resolution image on the basis of the feature vector of the increased-resolution image and outputs the recognized object as the object captured on the query image.

  • Patent number: 11881420
    Abstract: A ring support is attached to an inner wall surface of a chamber that houses a semiconductor wafer to support a susceptor. When the semiconductor wafer is placed on the susceptor, an inner space of the chamber is separated into an upper space and a lower space. Particles are likely to accumulate on a lower chamber window as a floor part of the chamber. However, since the upper space and the lower space are separated, the semiconductor wafer can be prevented from being contaminated by the particles flowing into the upper space and adhering to a surface of the semiconductor wafer even when the particles on the lower chamber window are blown up by irradiation with flash light.
