[Lecture] Some studies in visual tracking


Title: Some studies in visual tracking
Speaker: Prof. Haibin Ling (Temple University)
Venue:  Room 213, Building B3, University Town Campus
Time: May 15, Wednesday, 15:00-17:00

As a crucial problem in computer vision, visual tracking has been studied over decades with a wide spectrum of applications. In this talk, we will first summarize research conducted in our group on visual tracking with lessons learned and ideas otivated. Then, we will introduce in details our recent work of tracking algorithms on single-target tracking, plane object tracking, and multi-target tracking. We will also present our recent work on tracking benchmarks and evaluations.

Haibin Ling received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from Peking University in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 2006. From 2000 to 2001, he was an assistant researcher at Microsoft Research Asia. From 2006 to 2007, he worked as a postdoctoral scientist at the University of California Los Angeles. After that, he joined Siemens Corporate Research as a research scientist. Since fall 2008, he has been with Temple University. In fall 2019, he will join the (SUNY) Stony Brook University as an Empire Innovation Professor. His research interests include computer vision, augmented reality, medical image analysis, and human computer interaction. He received the Best Student Paper Award at the ACM UIST in 2003, and the NSF CAREER Award in 2014. He serves as Associate Editors for several journals including IEEE Trans. on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence (PAMI), Pattern Recognition (PR), and Computer Vision and Image Understanding (CVIU). He has served as Area Chairs for CVPR 2014, CVPR 2016, and CVPR 2019.
