In this paper we validate a new model of bottom-up saliency based in the decorrelation and the distinctiveness of local responses. The model is simple and light, and is based on biologically plausible mechanisms. Decorrelation is achieved by applying principal components analysis over a set of multiscale low level features. Distinctiveness is measured using the Hotelling’s T statistic. The presented approach provides a suitable framework for the incorporation of top-down processes like… CONTINUE READING
