Person re-identification is a popular research topic which aims at matching the specific person in a multi-camera network automatically. Feature representation and metric learning are two important issues for person re-identification. In this paper, we propose a novel person re-identification method, which consists of a reliable representation called semantic region representation (SRR), and an effective metric learning with mapping space topology constraint (MSTC). The SRR integrates semantic…

Contextual Similarity Regularized Metric Learning for person re-identification

This paper argues that if two images are from the same person, apart from the visual likeness between them, they should also possess similar k-nearest neighbors in the gallery, denoted as the contextual similarity, and proposes a new Contextual Similarity Regularized Metric Learning (CSRML) method for person re-identification.

Person Reidentification Using Attribute-Restricted Projection Metric Learning

The main idea of the method is to learn a low-dimensional metric space, in which the features extracted from different observations of the same person are pulled, and the features extracts from observations of different persons but in the neighborhood of original feature space are pushed.
