Robust Saliency Detection via Fusing Foreground and Background Priors

1 Nov 2017  ·  Kan Huang, Chunbiao Zhu, Ge Li ·

Automatic Salient object detection has received tremendous attention from research community and has been an increasingly important tool in many computer vision tasks. This paper proposes a novel bottom-up salient object detection framework which considers both foreground and background cues. First, A series of background and foreground seeds are selected from an image reliably, and then used for calculation of saliency map separately. Next, a combination of foreground and background saliency map is performed. Last, a refinement step based on geodesic distance is utilized to enhance salient regions, thus deriving the final saliency map. Particularly we provide a robust scheme for seeds selection which contributes a lot to accuracy improvement in saliency detection. Extensive experimental evaluations demonstrate the effectiveness of our proposed method against other outstanding methods.
