Abstract: Recent advancement of research in biometrics, computer vision, and natural language processing has discovered opportunities for person retrieval from surveillance videos using a textual query. The prime objective of a surveillance system is to locate a person using a description, e.g., a tall man with a white t-shirt and blue jeans carrying a backpack. He has brown hair. Such a description contains attributes like gender, height, type of clothing, colour of clothing, hair colour, and accessories. Such attributes are formally known as soft biometrics. They help bridge the semantic gap between a human description and a machine as a textual query contains the person’s soft biometric attributes. Traditional biometric (e.g., face) fails to locate a person in the surveillance video due to low resolution, distance, and unconstrained environment. In such cases, soft biometric attributes like gender, clothing colour, and type are still deducible. It is also not feasible to manually search through huge volumes of surveillance footage to retrieve a specific person. Hence, automatic person retrieval using vision and language-based algorithms is becoming popular. Date: 26.07.2021 Time: 11.00 am to 11.50 am: 35 Mins talk + 15 Mins.
