Interest point detectors (e.g. SIFT, SURF, and MSER) have been successfully applied to numerous applications in high level computer vision tasks such as object detection, and image classification. Despite their popularity, the perceptual relevance of these detectors has not been thoroughly studied. Here, perceptual relevance is meant to define the correlation between these point detectors and free-viewing human fixations on images. In this work, we provide empirical evidence to shed light on… CONTINUE READING
