Detecting visible as well as invisible objects of interest in real-world scenes is crucial in new-generation video-surveillance. For this purpose, we design a fully intelligent system incorporating semantic, symbolic, and grounded information. In particular, we conceptualize temporal representations we use together with spatial and visual information in our multi-view tracking system. It uses them for automated reasoning and induction of knowledge about the multiple views of the studied scene, in order to automatically detect salient or hidden objects of interest. Tests on standard datasets demonstrated the efficiency and accuracy of our proposed approach.
