Visual attention is a mechanism in human perception, which selects relevant regions from a scene and provides these regions for higher-level processing as object recognition. This enables humans to act effectively in their environment despite the complexity of perceivable sensor data. Computational vision systems face the same problem as humans: there is a large amount of available information that has to be processed and if an efficient processing shall be achieved, maybe even real-time… CONTINUE READING
