  title={Target Detection Using Saliency-based Attention},
  author={Laurent Itti and Christof Koch},
Most models of visual search, whether involving overt eye movements or covert shifts of attention, are based on the concept of a "saliency map", that is, an explicit two-dimensional map that encodes the saliency or conspicuity of objects in the visual environment.
