Weakly supervised discriminative feature learning with state information for person identification

We propose a simple pseudo label model which uses state information (e.g. camera view labels in re-id and pose labels in face recognition) to refine pseudo labels. Despite simplicity, it achieves comparable performances to standard supervised fine-tuning on several datasets.

Unsupervised Person Re-identification by Soft Multilabel Learning

Lacking pairwise labels is the fundamental challenge in unsupervised person re-identification. We propose a novel paradigm to learn soft labels that are interpretable and lead to superior performances. Tackling this fundamental issue allows future research to ultimately approach supervised performances.

Cross-view Asymmetric Metric Learning for Unsupervised Person Re-identification

We demonstrate the potential of unsupervised person re-identification by introducing a key principle: camera view-aware modeling. This principle is now widely adopted in unsupervised/domain adaptive RE-ID works.
