Visual Object Tracking

The task object tracking is vital in numerous applications, such as autonomous driving, intelligent surveillance, robotics, etc. The standard formulation for the object tracking is assigning a so called bounding box to an object in a video stream (i.e., on every frame of the video), provided only the bounding box for a chosen object on the first frame. In this field, we want to achieve not only accurate localization, but also a small number of object losses during tracking.

At the seminar, we will look at the existing state-of-the-art models, discuss the approaches and techniques that are used in this area to achieve the maximum tracking perfomance.
