It is important to develop intelligent visual understanding systems to satisfy our need for searching information of interest. An important example of such a system that, with the current increasing concern for public security, is urgently required, is an automated person Re-Identification (ReID) system. This thesis mainly focuses on exploring ReID systems via deep learning methods. To enable ReID systems to meet the so-called open-world challenges, we explore three themes that are challenging yet practical in real application scenarios: lifelong learning, unsupervised domain adaptation and cross-modality challenge. Furthermore, this thesis provides numerous experiments and in-depth analysis, which can help motivate further research on the three research themes.
