Image saliency attempts to describe the most conspicuous part in an input image by mimicking human visual selective attention mechanism. Naturally, it could be adopted for improving object recognition. To demonstrate the effectiveness of saliency in object recognition, this paper proposes a salient hierarchical model. First, the traditional saliency model is modified for more robust saliency estimation. Second, the visual saliency detection method is combined with the Hierarchical Maximization… CONTINUE READING
