Paper Abstract

In this paper we investigate the problem of fusing a set of features for a discriminative visual tracking algorithm, where good features are those that best discriminate an object from the local background. Using a principled Mutual Information approach, we introduce a novel online feature selection algorithm that preserves discriminative features while reducing redundant information. Applying this algorithm to a discriminative visual tracking system, we experimentally demonstrate improved tracking performance on standard data sets.
