About this book

The first book of its kind dedicated to the challenge of person re-identification, this text provides an in-depth, multidisciplinary discussion of recent developments and state-of-the-art methods. Features: introduces examples of robust feature representations, reviews salient feature weighting and selection mechanisms and examines the benefits of semantic attributes; describes how to segregate meaningful body parts from background clutter; examines the use of 3D depth images and contextual constraints derived from the visual appearance of a group; reviews approaches to feature transfer function and distance metric learning and discusses potential solutions to issues of data scalability and identity inference; investigates the limitations of existing benchmark datasets, presents strategies for camera topology inference and describes techniques for improving post-rank search efficiency; explores the design rationale and implementation considerations of building a practical re-identification system.

Reviews

The book is intended for researchers that work, or want to start working on this research topic. … The book is very interesting and allows having an insight into the problem of person re-identification and its potential applications. It provides a presentation of the current state-of-the-are and recent progress on this topic. I think that researchers who intend to work on re-identification can benefit from reading this book. They will be introduced to the many interesting challenges to be faced.” (Donatello Conte, IAPR Newsletter, Vol. 37 (2), 2015)
