Contour information plays a vital role in salient object detection. However, excessive false positives remain in predictions from existing contour-based models due to insufficient contour-saliency fusion. In this work, we designed a network for better edge quality in salient object detection. We proposed a contour-saliency blending module to exchange information between contour and saliency. We adopted recursive CNN to increase contour-saliency fusion while keeping the total trainable…
