Person re-identification (re-ID), which aims to identify the same individual from a gallery collected with different cameras, has attracted increasing attention in the multimedia retrieval community. Current deep learning methods for person re-ID focus on learning classification models on training identities to obtain an ID-discriminative embedding (IDE) extractor, which is used to extract features from testing images for re-ID. The IDE features of the testing identities might not be discriminative due to that the training identities are different from the testing identities. In this paper, we introduce a new ID-adaptation network (ID-AdaptNet), which aims to improve the discriminative power..
