Seminar “Object Tracking Based on Harmony Search” by prof. Yanmei Yu, 22 Nov 2012 h. 11:00

The Internet Media Group will host the seminar “Object Tracking Based on Harmony Search” given by prof. Yanmei Yu on Thursday 22 November 2012, h. 11:00, in “meeting room 3”  (4th floor), at the Dip. Automatica e Informatica, Politecnico di Torino.The seminar is open to anyone interested in the topics.

The activity is within the context of the FP7 People/Irses S2EuNet Project “Security, Services, Networking and Performance of Next-Generation IP-Based Multimedia Wireless Networks”. ( ) The project fosters research collaboration of Politecnico with extra-EU partner institutions by funding mobility of research students, post-doc and faculty. For more information contact Enrico or Antonio of the Internet Media Group.

Abstract: The presentation will consist of two parts:

  • Introduction to Image Information Institute, Sichuan University and brief overview of research activities -  “Object Tracking Based on Harmony Search”. Harmony Search(HS) is a population-based meta-heuristic optimization algorithm, inspired by music. HS has been successfully applied to various optimization problems in the computation and engineering fields. An object tracking based on 4 improved variations of HS will be talked in detail.
