Abstract

In this paper, we present a cost-effective Video-Surveillance System (VSS) for face recognition and online clustering of unknown individuals at large scale. We aim to obtain Performance Indicators (PIs) for people flow monitoring in large infrastructures, without storing any biometric information. For this purpose, we focus on how to take advantage of a central GPU-enabled computing server, connected to a set of video-surveillance cameras, to automatically register new identities and update their descriptive data as they are re-identified. The proposed method comprises two main procedures executed in parallel. A Multi-Stage Dynamic Batching (MSDB) procedure efficiently extracts facial identity vectors (i-vectors) from captured images. At the same time, an On-Demand I-Vector Clustering (ODIVC) procedure clusters the i-vectors into identities. This clustering algorithm is designed to progressively adapt to the increasing data scale, with a lower decrease in its effectiveness compared to other alternatives. Experimental results show that ODIVC achieves state-of-the-art results in well-known large scale datasets and that our VSS can detect, recognize and cluster in real time faces coming from up to 40 cameras with a central off-the-shelf GPU-enabled computing server.
