Automatic counting of insects in trap images using Deep Learning


Work description

This work intends to develop a system capable of performing automatic counting of insects in trap images using deep learning. For this you will need: - Research state-of-the-art methods for segmenting traps in images and for counting insects present in them; - Organize a database, based on the images provided by the mySense platform and identify public databases with images of insect traps that allow better testing and evaluation of the methods to be developed; - Implement state-of-the-art deep learning methods for automatic segmentation of traps and for counting the insects present in them.
