[CVPR2019/PaperSummary]Improving Pedestrian Attribute Recognition With Weakly-Supervised Multi-Scale Attribute-Specific Localization

Person Attribute Recognition
Figure1 . Overview of the proposed framework. The input pedestrian image is fed into the main network with both bottom-up and topdown pathways. Features combined from different levels are fed into multiple Attribute Localization Modules (Figure 2), which perform attribute-specific localization and region-based feature learning. Outputs from different branches are trained with deep supervision and
aggregated through an element-wise maximum operation for inference. M is the total number of attributes. Best viewed in color
Eq1: Feature concatenation
Eq2: Dimensionality reduction
Figure 2. Details of the proposed Attribute Localization Module(ALM), which consists of a tiny channel attention sub-network and a simplified spatial transformer. The ALM takes the combined
features Xi as input and produces an attribute-specific prediction. Each ALM only serves one attribute at a singe level
Eq3: Transformation matrix
Eq4:Classification formulae
Eq5: Loss calculation
Eq6: Total Loss
Eq7: mean Accuracy per attribute

feature levels. Best viewed in color
Figure 5. Case studies of different attribute-specific localization methods on three different attributes: Boots (Top), Glasses (Middle), and Box (Bottom)
Table 2. Quantitative comparisons against previous methods on PETA and RAP datasets. We divide these methods into four groups: holistic
methods, relation-based methods, attention-based methods, and part-based methods
