Unformatted text preview: CS221 Challenge Problem: Object Recognition and Tracking 1 CS 221 Object Recognition and Tracking You may work in teams of up to 3 students for this project. Some important dates: • You must form a team by Friday, October 9 , 11:59pm. Send us an email with your team details, as described in Section 3. If you want to define your own project, the project proposal is also due on this date, but you should contact us well in advance to make sure what you have in mind meets the proposal requirements. • The deadline for the milestone is Tuesday, October 20 , 11:59pm. • The final program submission deadline is Thursday, December 10 at 12:15pm (no late days). • The final project competition will be on Friday, December 11 from 12:15-3:15pm. • The written report is due on Friday, December 11 , 11:59pm. (no late days) You may use late days on the milestone, 1 but not the program submission or the writeup sub- mission, to allow us to run the competition and complete grading in time. 1 General Description This handout describes one of the two challenge problems for this course. These challenge problems have been picked to be quite open-ended and you are encouraged to experiment with different ideas, algorithms, functions, and so forth. Indeed, those teams that do explore will most probably do better in the competition. Honor Code: You may consult any papers, books, or online references for ideas that you may want to incorporate into your strategy or learning algorithm, so long as you clearly cite your sources in your code and your paper. However, under no circumstances may you look at another student’s code or incorporate their code (either from this year or a previous year) into your project. 2 Challenge problem 2: Object recognition and tracking In this challenge problem, you will build an object recognition and tracking program. The program should identify and label all occurences of 5 objects (mug, stapler, keyboard, clock, and scissors) in a given video clip. You will be given several labeled still images of each of these objects as training data (similar to those in Table 1), and several labeled short videos to run experiments on. During the final competition, your program will be evaluated on similar but unseen videos, as described in Section 8.1. 1 Please note that late days taken by your team will count against each team member’s supply of late days; for example, if you take 2 late days then each member of your team will be charged 2 late days.

Most of the new topics will be covered in class....
