The performance of a detector depends much on its training dataset and drops significantly when the detector is applied to a new scene due to the large variations between the source training dataset and the target scene. In order to bridge this appearance gap, we propose a deep model to automatically learn scene-specific features and visual patterns in static video surveillance without any manual labels from the target scene. It jointly learns a scene-specific classifier and the distribution of the target samples. Both tasks share multi-scale feature representations with both discriminative and representative power. We also propose a cluster layer in the deep model that utilizes the scene-specific visual patterns for pedestrian detection. Our specifically designed objective function not only incorporates the confidence scores of target training samples but also automatically weights the importance of source training samples by fitting the marginal distributions of target samples. It significantly improves the detection rates at 1 FPPI by 10% compared with the state-of-the-art domain adaptation methods on MIT Traffic Dataset and CUHK Square Dataset.
