Abstract

Provided is an image identification device that achieves a reduction in training cost for a machine learning model and identifies whether or not an image object has a desired characteristic. An image identification device 3 extracts textual features from directive text describing abnormal behavior and determines a directive behavior class on the basis of the textual features using a textual feature extractor 308 and a directive behavior class determiner 309. When identifying abnormal behavior, behavioral features are extracted from skeletal information extracted from a video image using a skeletal information extractor 301 and a behavioral feature extractor 302, and an exception probability of the behavioral features is calculated from the statistical distribution in a field site using an exception probability calculator 303. Furthermore, behavior class probabilities of the behavioral features are calculated, and the maximum value of the behavior class probabilities is determined for the directive behavior class using a behavior classifier 304 and a maximum value selector 305. If the product of the exception probability and the maximum value calculated by a multiplier 306 is greater than or equal to a threshold value, an abnormal behavior determiner 307 determines the behavior to be abnormal.

Abstract

Provided are an unusual behavior discrimination method, an unusual behavior discrimination program, and an unusual behavior discrimination device which can reduce the discrimination processing cost and the learning cost of a machine learning model for discriminating unusual behavior. An unusual behavior discrimination program 3 comprises a skeletal information extractor 301, a behavior feature amount extractor 302, and an unusual behavior discriminator 303. The skeletal information extractor 301 extracts skeletal information from a video image. The behavior feature amount extractor 302 extracts a behavior feature amount from the skeletal information. The skeletal information extractor 301 and the behavior feature amount extractor 302 are machine learning models, and machine learning is performed using a general behavior recognition data set. Subsequently, a behavior feature amount is extracted from a video image captured at the same imaging site as a video image to be discriminated for unusual behavior, and a statistical amount of said feature amount is derived in advance. At the time of unusual behavior discrimination, the unusual behavior discriminator 303 discriminates unusual behavior by comparing the behavior feature amount to be discriminated and the statistical amount.

The control unit performs scan control to causing the ink to be ejected to the inclined surface from the nozzle of the ink ejection unit while causing the ink ejection unit and the inclined surface to relatively move in a prescribed scan direction. In the scan control, the control unit controls the ink ejection unit so that a liquid droplet amount of the ink landed per prescribed area of the inclined surface by one scan control becomes less than or equal to a maximum liquid droplet amount defined on the basis of an inclination angle of the inclined surface from a horizontal surface.
