Tracking is one of the core problems in computer vision. The problem is, given an object delineated in a frame of a (collection of) video sequence(s), determine the location of that object throughout the remainder of the video sequence(s). There are many factors that make the problem a difficult one, including appearance changes due to lighting and object movement, occlusion by fixed and moving objects, clutter (other parts of the image that mimic the appearance of the object) and long gaps in observation. In this talk I will review work done at Maryland during the past several years that addresses many of these issues.
Speaker Profile:
Dr. Davis is known for his research in computer vision and high performance computing. In 1997 Larry Davis was named a Fellow of the IEEE. Dr. Larry S. Davis received his M. S. and Ph. D. in Computer Science from the University of Maryland in 1974 and 1976 respectively. From 1977-1981 he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of CS at the University of Texas, Austin. He returned to the University of Maryland as an Associate Professor in 1981. From 1985-1994 he was the Director of the University of Maryland Institute for Advanced Computer Studies. He is currently a professor in the Institute and the Computer Science Department, as well as Chair of the Computer Science Department at the University of Maryland. He has published over 100 papers in journals. He is an Associate Editor of the International Journal of Computer Vision and an area editor for Computer Models for Image Processing: Image Understanding. He has served as program or general chair for most of the field's major conferences and workshops.
