A generation unit 3 generates a first image by associating the following: a category feature that is obtained from a second image belonging to the same category as a first image and that is a feature shared by images belonging to said category; and a characteristic feature that is a characteristic feature differing between the first image and the second image.
(FR): La présente invention permet de générer une image qui appartient à une catégorie souhaitée et qui a un trait caractéristique souhaité. Une unité de génération génère une première image par association des éléments suivants : une caractéristique de catégorie qui est obtenue à partir d'une seconde image appartenant à la même catégorie qu'une première image et qui est une caractéristique partagée par des images appartenant à ladite catégorie ; et un trait caractéristique qui est un trait caractéristique différent entre la première image et la seconde image.
(JA): 所望のカテゴリの画像であって、かつ、所望の固有特徴を有する画像を生成することができるようにする。 生成部3は、第一の画像と同じカテゴリに属する第二の画像から得られた当該カテゴリに属する画像に共通する特徴であるカテゴリ特徴と、第一の画像と第二の画像とで異なる固有の特徴である固有特徴と、を関連付けることで第一の画像を生成する。
