Following the recent progress in image classification and image captioning using deep learning, we developed a novel person retrieval system using natural language, which to our knowledge is first of its kind. Our system employs a state-of-the-art deep learning based natural language object retrieval framework to detect and retrieve people in images. Quantitative experimental results show significant improvement over state-of-the-art meth- ods for generic object retrieval. This line of research
