Abstract: In this master thesis, the problem of tracking humans in video streams by using Deep Learning is examined. We use spatially supervised recurrent convolutional neural networks for visual human tracking. In this method, the recurrent convolutional network uses both the history of locations and the visual features from the deep neural networks. This method is used for tracking, based on the detection results. We concatenate the location of detected bounding boxes with high-level visual features produced by convolutional networks and then predict the tracking bounding box for next frames. Because a video contain continuous frames, we decide to have a method which uses the information from history of frames to have a robust tracking in different visually challenging cases such as occlusion, motion blur, fast movement, etc. Long Short-Term Memory (LSTM) is a kind of recurrent convolutional neural network and useful for our purpose. Instead of using binary classification which is commonly used in deep learning based tracking methods, we use a regression for direct prediction of the tracking locations. Our purpose is to test our method on real videos which is recorded by head-mounted camera. So our test videos are very challenging and contain different cases of fast movements, motion blur, occlusions, etc. Considering the limitation of the training data-set which is spatially imbalanced, we have a problem for tracking the humans who are in the corners of the image but in other challenging cases, the proposed tracking method worked well.
