Abstract

Recently, saliency detection has become a hot issue in computer vision. In this paper, a novel framework for image saliency detection is introduced by modeling global shape and local cue estimation simultaneously. Firstly, Quaternionic Distance Based Weber Descriptor (QDWD), which was initially designed for detecting outliers in color images, is used to model the salient object shape in an image. Secondly, we detect local saliency based on the reconstruction error by using a locality-constrained linear coding algorithm. Finally, by integrating global shape with local cue, a reliable saliency map can be computed and estimated. Experimental results, based on two widely used and openly available databases, show that the proposed method can produce reliable and promising results, compared to other state-of-the-art saliency detection algorithms.
