Recent years have seen many complex models proposed for salient object detection and progressing results. However, less has been done to justify the need for such complex models as there lacks sufficient comparison to simple baselines on more challenging datasets. In this work, we propose a new baseline method for saliency detection. It simply considers a large region close to the image center as salient, and defines the saliency of a region as the product of its size and centerness. As… CONTINUE READING
