Title: IMAGE PROCESSING DEVICE AND IMAGE PROCESSING METHOD
Abstract:
This image processing device comprises: a work state inference unit that infers a work state of a user who performs work while observing an image obtained by imaging a subject, thereby obtaining an inference result; a specular reflection region correction unit that performs processing for correcting a specular reflection region included in the image obtained by imaging the subject; and a control unit that, when detecting on the basis of the inference result obtained by the work state inference unit that a first work task for searching for a desired object in the subject is being performed, performs control to cause output of the image in which the specular reflection region is maintained as an observation image, and when detecting that a second work task for identifying the desired object found in the subject is being performed, performs control to cause output of an image in which the specular reflection region is corrected by the specular reflection region correction unit as an observation image.
