This paper presents a simple and effective method to compute the pixel saliency with full resolution in an image. First, the proposed method creates an image representation of four color channels through the modified computation on the basis of Itti et al.[5]. Then the most informative channel is automatically identified from the derived four color channels. Finally, the pixel saliency is computed through the simple combination of contrast feature and spatial attention function on the…

An Improved Saliency Detection Approach for Flying Apsaras in the Dunhuang Grotto Murals, China

An improved approach based on a frequency-tuned method for visual saliency detection of Flying Apsaras in the Dunhuang Grotto Murals, China resulted in a much more efficient salient map in the aspect of computing performance.

Saliency location based on color contrast

This work replaces high-level features that frequently used in a fixation prediction model with a new saliency location map in order to make the model more general, and evaluates the performance of the model on both saliency detection and fixation prediction datasets in comparison with six state-of-the-artSaliency detection models.

It is demonstrated that a combined model of bio-inspired spatio-temporal features, high-level and low-level features outperform listed models in predicting human fixation on dynamic visual input.



Saliency Detection: A Spectral Residual Approach

A simple method for the visual saliency detection is presented, independent of features, categories, or other forms of prior knowledge of the objects, and a fast method to construct the corresponding saliency map in spatial domain is proposed.

Frequency-tuned salient region detection

This paper introduces a method for salient region detection that outputs full resolution saliency maps with well-defined boundaries of salient objects that outperforms the five algorithms both on the ground-truth evaluation and on the segmentation task by achieving both higher precision and better recall.

Segmenting Salient Objects from Images and Videos

A new salient object segmentation method, which is based on combining a saliency measure with a conditional random field (CRF) model, which outperforms the current state-of-the-art methods in both qualitative and quantitative terms.

Salient Region Detection and Segmentation

A novel method to determine salient regions in images using low-level features of luminance and color is presented, which is fast, easy to implement and generates high quality saliency maps of the same size and resolution as the input image.

Learning to Detect a Salient Object

A set of novel features, including multiscale contrast, center-surround histogram, and color spatial distribution, are proposed to describe a salient object locally, regionally, and globally.

Context-aware saliency detection

A new type of saliency is proposed – context-aware saliency – which aims at detecting the image regions that represent the scene and a detection algorithm is presented which is based on four principles observed in the psychological literature.

Contrast-based image attention analysis by using fuzzy growing

A feasible and fast approach to attention area detection in images based on contrast analysis is proposed and a practicable framework for image attention analysis is presented, which provides three-level attention analysis, i.e., attended view, attended areas and attended points.

Graph-Based Visual Saliency

A new bottom-up visual saliency model, Graph-Based Visual Saliency (GBVS), is proposed, which powerfully predicts human fixations on 749 variations of 108 natural images, achieving 98% of the ROC area of a human-based control, whereas the classical algorithms of Itti & Koch achieve only 84%.
