Person Search

  • Person Search

Person search has drawn considerable attention recently with the increasing demand for person re-identification from real world scene images. The conventional person reidentification takes a set of cropped person images and selects the images among them matching to a given query person. On the other hand, the person search methods directly find the query person from a set of scene images where multiple people may appear in a single image. Since the person search works on unconstrained images, it has a strong potential to be applied to numerous practical applications. For example, it can be used to deploy visual surveillance systems to monitor and trace the suspects from CCTV video sequences. Also, it can be applied to augmented reality systems with mobile camera devices to provide visual information useful for social entertainment.
