Dense 3D-convolutional neural network for person re-identification in videos
It is well known that the current types of neural networks perform quite well in identifying faces in (still) images. But what about re-identifying moving pedestrians in non-overlapping video sequences taken from different cameras? The paper’s novel approach increases the accuracy... more
I cannot imagine a rigorous mathematical proof, even if heavily computer aided, that would show that... more
