Recent Advances in Saliency Estimation for Omnidirectional Images, Image Groups, and Video Sequences

Marco Buzzelli
2020 Applied Sciences  
We present a review of methods for automatic estimation of visual saliency: the perceptual property that makes specific elements in a scene stand out and grab the attention of the viewer.  ...  We define domain-specific evaluation measures, and provide quantitative comparisons on the basis of common datasets and evaluation criteria, highlighting the different impact of existing approaches on  ...  [64] , according to three measures out of four. Both solutions are based on hand-crafted algorithms with a specific focus on emulating the color perception in human vision.  ...

Examples are given from a number of domains, including risk regulation, punishment, reproduction and sexuality, and the act/omission distinction.  ...  With respect to questions of fact, people use heuristics -mental short-cuts, or rules of thumb, that generally work well, but that also lead to systematic errors.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS I am grateful to Elizabeth Emens and Adrian Vermeule for helpful comments on this response.  ...
