Saliency in 2D imagery has been receiving increasing attention over the last few years owing to the need to minimize computation requirements through visual search space reduction, especially in the field of domestic robotics. Saliency and pre-attention mechanisms such as the Itti-Koch model have largely been focused on multi-scale local features mimicking low level attention processes in visual system, without any regard for the semantic content of the scene and therefore any cognitive… CONTINUE READING
