Abstract
The existing metric learning based Person Re-Identification are challenged with large appearance variations across non-overlapping cameras. In this paper, we propose to learn a similarity metric that incorporates robustness against cross views appearance variations. The robustness in metric learning is achieved by learning an adaptive sample specific multi-kernel space for each pair of cross-view images for each person in the training set, referred as SSMK. To this end, we first project features of each person into a multi-kernel feature space, where the subtle features of a person are highlighted to help differentiate this person from others. With the discriminative feature projection of all persons in the learned SSMK space, a robust global metric referred as SSMK-M is learned via Local Fisher Discriminant Analysis (LFDA). During testing, SSMK space is constructed in an incremental way to minimize appearance variations. Experiments show that the proposed approach out- performs most non-deep-learning based approaches on popular benchmarks including VIPeR, GRID and CUHK01.
