    Abstract: In a finite-set-valued Hidden Markov Model (HMM), the hidden state is a finite set. Such an HMM describes a multi-object system, a system in which the number of objects and their states are unknown and vary randomly with time. Multi-object systems arise in many research disciplines including surveillance, computer vision, robotics, biomedical research and machine learning…

    4.15-5.00pm

    Department of Statistics, LG.03

    Abstract: The application of random sets in multi-target tracking has led to the development of Finite Set Statistics (FISST) which provides the basis for filters such as the Probability Hypothesis Density (PHD) filter and more recently the Generalized Labelled Multi-Bernoulli (GLMB) filter, which recently attracted considerable research interest as well as deployment in commercial…
