This paper studies the performance of recorded eye movements and computational visual attention models (i.e. saliency models) in the recognition of emotional valence of an image. In the first part of this study, it employs eye movement data (fixation & saccade) to build image content descriptors and use them with support vector machines to classify the emotional valence. In the second part, it examines if the human saliency map can be substituted with the state-of-the-art computational visual… CONTINUE READING
