We consider the problem of data association for multi-target tracking in the presence of an unknown number of targets. For this application, inference in models which place parametric priors on large numbers of targets becomes computationally intractable. As an alternative to parametric models, we explore the utility of nonparametric Bayesian methods, specifically Dirichlet processes, which allow us to put a flexible, data-driven prior on the number of targets present in our observations… CONTINUE READING
