Efficient Bayesian approach to saliency detection based on Dirichlet process mixture
Saliency detection has shown a great role in many image processing applications. This study introduces a new Bayesian framework for saliency detection. In this framework, image saliency is computed as product of three saliencies: location-based, feature-based and centre-surround saliencies. Each of these saliencies is estimated using statistical approaches. The centre-surround saliency is estimated using Dirichlet process mixture model. The authors evaluate their method using five different databases and it is shown that it outperform state-of-the-art methods. Also, they show that the proposed method has a low computational cost.
