Boosting adaptive linear weak classifiers for online learning and tracking
Online boosting methods have recently been used successfully for tracking, background subtraction etc. Conventional online boosting algorithms emphasize on interchanging new weak classifiers/features to adapt with the change over time. We are proposing a new online boosting algorithm where the form of the weak classifiers themselves are modified to cope with scene changes. Instead of replacement, the parameters of the weak classifiers are altered in accordance with the new data subset presented to the online boosting process at each time step. Thus we may avoid altogether the issue of how many weak classifiers to be replaced to capture the change in the data or which efficient search algorithm to use for a fast retrieval of weak classifiers. A computationally efficient method has been used in this paper for the adaptation of linear weak classifiers. The proposed algorithm has been implemented to be used both as an online learning and a tracking method. We show quantitative and qualita...
