The Correlation Filter is an algorithm that trains a linear template to
discriminate between images and their translations. It is well suited to object
tracking because its formulation in the Fourier domain provides a fast
solution, enabling the detector to be re-trained once per frame...
that use the Correlation Filter, however, have adopted features that were
either manually designed or trained for a different task. This work is the
first to overcome this limitation by interpreting the Correlation Filter
learner, which has a closed-form solution, as a differentiable layer in a deep
neural network. This enables learning deep features that are tightly coupled to
the Correlation Filter. Experiments illustrate that our method has the
important practical benefit of allowing lightweight architectures to achieve
state-of-the-art performance at high framerates.
