Under natural viewing conditions humans tend to fixate on specific parts of images that interest them naturally. A saliency map is the map of regions which are more prominent than other regions in terms of low level image properties such as intensity, color, and orientation. With some modifications it can be used to simulate the natural human fixations also known as gaze. There are numerous applications in the field of engineering, marketing and art that can benefit from understanding the human… CONTINUE READING
