Self-Paced Uncertainty Estimation for One-shot Person Re-Identification

04/19/2021 ∙ by Yulin Zhang, et al. ∙ 0

The one-shot Person Re-ID scenario faces two kinds of uncertainties when constructing the prediction model from X to Y. The first is model uncertainty, which captures the noise of the parameters in DNNs due to a lack of training data. The second is data uncertainty, which can be divided into two sub-types: one is image noise, where severe occlusion and the complex background contain irrelevant information about the identity; the other is label noise, where mislabeled affects visual appearance learning. In this paper, to tackle these issues, we propose a novel Self-Paced Uncertainty Estimation Network (SPUE-Net) for one-shot Person Re-ID. By introducing a self-paced sampling strategy, our method can estimate the pseudo-labels of unlabeled samples iteratively to expand the labeled samples gradually and remove model uncertainty without extra supervision. We divide the pseudo-label samples into two subsets to make the use of training samples more reasonable and effective. In addition, we apply a Co-operative learning method of local uncertainty estimation combined with determinacy estimation to achieve better hidden space feature mining and to improve the precision of selected pseudo-labeled samples, which reduces data uncertainty. Extensive comparative evaluation experiments on video-based and image-based datasets show that SPUE-Net has significant advantages over the state-of-the-art methods.
