DeepChange: A Long-Term Person Re-Identification Benchmark with Clothes Change ICCV 2023

This is the official project page of the paper "DeepChange: A Long-Term Person Re-Identification Benchmark with Clothes Change" ICCV 2023.

Authors: XU Peng and ZHU Xiatian

We contribute a large, realistic long-term person re-identification benchmark. It consists of 178K bounding boxes from 1.1K person identities, collected and constructed over a course of 12 months. Unique characteristics of this dataset include: (1) Natural/native personal appearance (e.g., clothes and hair style) variations: The clothes-change and dressing styles are highly diverse, with the reappearing gap in time ranging from minutes, hours, and days to weeks, months, seasons, and years. (2) Diverse walks of life: Persons across a wide range of ages and professions appear in different weather conditions (e.g., sunny, cloudy, windy, rainy, snowy, extremely cold) and events (e.g., working, leisure, daily activities). (3) Rich camera setups: The raw videos were recorded by 17 outdoor security cameras with various resolutions operating in a real-world surveillance system for a wide and dense block. (4) Largest scale: It covers the largest number of (17) cameras, (1121) identities, and (178407) bounding boxes, as compared to alternative datasets.

Figure A. Images of a random person identity from DeepChange with clothes change, as well as variation in behavior, pose, hair, illumination, weather, background, etc.

Figure B. Image samples of random identities in DeepChange. Identities from top left to bottom right: an aunt (bbox#1-#19), an office lady (bbox#20-#27), a pupil (bbox#28-#36), a newspaper delivery (bbox#37-#41), an older aunt (bbox#42-#49), a worker (bbox#50-#51), a nun (bbox#52-#53), a Muslim man (bbox#54-#56), a chef (bbox#57-#58), a disabled person (bbox#59-#60), a dustman (bbox#61-#70).

Figure C. Images collected in snow (top two lines, bbox#1-#20) and rain (bottom line, bbox#21-#30) weather from DeepChange.

Figure D. Image pairs of the specific persons with simultaneous clothes and hair style changes in the DeepChange. For each identity, only two cases are selected randomly.
