Variations in the appearance of a tracked object, such as changes in geometry/photometry, camera viewpoint, illumination, or partial occlusion, pose a major challenge to object tracking. Here, we adopt cognitive psychology principles to design a flexible representation that can adapt to changes in object appearance during tracking. Inspired by the(More)
The Visual Object Tracking challenge 2015, VOT2015, aims at comparing short-term single-object visual trackers that do not apply pre-learned models of object appearance. Results of 62 trackers are presented. The number of tested trackers makes VOT 2015 the largest benchmark on shortterm tracking to date. For each participating tracker, a short description(More)
We illustrate the ability of a fixed-weight neural network, trained with Kalman filter methods, to perform tasks that are usually entrusted to an explicitly adaptive system. Following a simple example, we demonstrate that such a network can be trained to exhibit input-output behavior that depends on which of two conditioning tasks was performed a(More)
Combining multiple observation views has proven beneficial for tracking. In this paper, we cast tracking as a novel multi-task multi-view sparse learning problem and exploit the cues from multiple views including various types of visual features, such as intensity, color, and edge, where each feature observation can be sparsely represented by a linear(More)
Most object tracking methods only exploit a single quantization of an image space: pixels, superpixels, or bounding boxes, each of which has advantages and disadvantages. It is highly unlikely that a common optimal quantization level, suitable for tracking all objects in all environments, exists. We therefore propose a hierarchical appearance representation(More)
This paper describes the design of a single learning network that integrates both object location (“where”) and object type (“what”), from images of learned objects in natural complex backgrounds. The in-place learning algorithm is used to develop the internal representation (including synaptic bottomup and top-down weights of every neuron) in the network,(More)
A neural network controller for improved fuel efficiency of the Toyota Prius hybrid electric vehicle is proposed. A new method to detect and mitigate a battery fault is also presented. The approach is based on recurrent neural networks and includes the extended Kalman filter. The proposed approach is quite general and applicable to other control systems.
Predicting the onset of epileptic seizure is an important and di$cult biomedical problem, which has attracted substantial attention of the intelligent computing community over the past two decades. We apply recurrent neural networks (RNN) combined with signal wavelet decomposition to the problem. We input raw EEG and its wavelet-decomposed subbands into RNN(More)
We propose a technique for the design and analysis of adaptation algorithms in dynamical systems. The technique applies both to systems with conventional Lyapunov-stable target dynamics and to ones of which the desired dynamics around the target set is nonequilibrium and in general unstable in the Lyapunov sense. Mathematical models of uncertainties are(More)
