  • Publication number: 20200311389
    Abstract: A domain adaptation-based object recognition apparatus includes a memory configured to store a domain adaptation-based object recognition program and a processor configured to execute the program. The processor learns a generative model for generating a feature or an image similar to a gallery image on the basis of domain adaptation in association with an input probe image and learns an object recognition classification model by using a learning database corresponding to the gallery image and the input probe image, thereby performing object recognition using the input probe image.
