In this paper, we present a novel approach to saliency detection. The method we propose here aims at synthesizing common knowledge of saliency in an image. We define a visually salient region with following two parameters; the spatial redundancy and its local appearance. The former is its probability of occurrence within the image, which is a quantification of the " rarity " of the concerned region, whereas the latter defines how much information is contained within the region, and it can be… CONTINUE READING
