Introduction to the model

Banner image for the model

Crowd counting from an image is a challenging task due to occlusion, low quality, and scale variation of objects. With the development of deep learning techniques, various crowd counting methods have been proposed in response to this challenge. This model uses a method that solves the crowd counting problem.

Model details

This model has the following characteristics:

  • Input—JPG or JPEG image. The recommended image resolution for optimal results is less than 2000x2000.
  • Output—Feature layer with the number of classes as the count of people in the input.
  • Compute—This workflow is compute intensive and a GPU with compute capability of 6.0 or higher is recommended.
  • Architecture—This model uses Distribution Matching for Crowd Counting (DM-Count).
  • Accuracy metrics—Average PSNR and SSIM over the whole QNRF test set are 40.65 and 0.55, respectively.
  • Training dataset—This model is trained using the UCF-QNRF dataset.
