Most previous works on saliency detection are dedicated to 2D images. Recently it has been shown that 3D visual information supplies a powerful cue for saliency analysis. In this paper, we propose a novel saliency method that works on depth images based on anisotropic center-surround difference. Instead of depending on absolute depth, we measure the(More)
Most previous works on salient object detection concentrate on 2D images. In this paper, we propose to explore the power of depth cue for predicting salient regions. Our basic assumption is that a salient object tends to stand out from its surroundings in 3D space. To measure the object-to-surrounding contrast, we propose a novel depth feature which works(More)
This paper presents an interactive object extraction approach for stereo images. The extraction task on stereo images has two significant differences compared to that on monoscopic images. First, the segmentation for both images should be consistent. Second, stereo images have implicit depth information, which supplies an important cue for object(More)
Recent years, the stereo image has become an emerging media in the field of 3D technology, which leads to an urgent demand of stereo image retrieval. In this paper, we attempt to introduce a framework for object-based stereo image retrieval (OBSIR), which retrieves images containing the similar objects to the one captured in the query image by the user. The(More)
Salient object detection attracts much attention for its effectiveness in numerous applications. However, how to effectively produce a high quality binary mask from a saliency map, named saliency cuts, is still an open problem. In this paper, we propose a novel saliency cuts approach using unsupervised seeds generation and GrabCut algorithm. With the input(More)
Image search reranking has been an active research topic in recent years to boost the performance of the existing web image search engine which is mostly based on textual metadata of images. Various approaches have been proposed to rerank images for general queries and argue that, they may not necessarily be optimal for queries in specific domain, e.g.,(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel interactive image segmentation method for RGB-D images using hierarchical Graph Cut. Considering the characteristics of RGB channels and depth channel in RGB-D image, we utilize Euclidean distance on RGB space and geodesic distance on 3D space to measure how likely a pixel belongs to foreground or background in color and(More)
As dissolve is the most common gradual shot transition, dissolve detection plays an important role in video segmentation which is the fundamental step for efficient video indexing and retrieval. However, the existing detection methods easily confuse dissolve with camera motion or object motion when using global features. Besides, when using local(More)
