Running the System:
1. Run SetPaths.m to set the paths to subdirectories.
2. Run RunReIdPipeline.m to execute person re-identification pipeline.

The pipeline components are:
Build thumbnails->Build ColorDB->Extract representations->Build distances matrix->Run evaluation

Each pipeline component stores its results in the .\Data\$DatsetName$\ directory. When running the pipeline, the very last component (Run evaluation) is executed first.
During the execution each pipeline component checks whether the data it expects from the previous component is available and if so loads it, if not, runs the previous
component to build the data.
