Visual object counting is a computer vision task relevant to a broad spectrum of problems, and specifically to the phenotyping domain. We propose two novel deep learning approaches for the visual object counting task, demonstrating their efficiency on the CVPPP 2017 Leaf Counting Challenge dataset. The first method performs counting via direct regression, predicting the count value using multiple scale representations of the image and using a novel fusion technique to combine the multi-scale predictions. In the second method, we count after predicting and aggregating all the leaf center points. Experimental results show that both our algorithms outperform last year's CVPPP challenge winners, while our second pipe also provides additional information of the leaf center points with a 95% average precision.
