A discriminatively learned CNN embedding for person reidentification
Zheng Z., Zheng L., Yang Y.  ACM Transactions on Multimedia Computing, Communications, and Applications 14(1): 1-20, 2017. Type: Article

For knowing whether the same person appears in two images (reidentification), one can either use identification models (that is, classifying the person to its identity) or verification models (that is, classifying whether both the images are of th...

Low-level programming: C, assembly, and program execution on Intel 64 architecture
Zhirkov I.,  Apress, New York, NY, 2017. 435 pp. Type: Book (978-1-484224-02-1)

Despite the ease of programming in high-level languages, there will always be things that are best programmed in low-level languages (such as speed, resource usage, and size). Assembler is certainly the lowest language, but assembler programs are ...
