Image salient object detection (SOD) is an active research topic in computer vision and multimedia area. Fusing complementary information of RGB and depth has been demonstrated to be effective for image salient object detection which is known as RGB-D salient object detection problem. The main challenge for RGB-D salient object detection is how to exploit the salient cues of both intra-modality (RGB, depth) and cross-modality simultaneously which is known as cross-modality detection problem.

To further improve the detection results, the attention mechanism and edge detection module are also incorporated into cmSalGAN. The entire cmSalGAN can be trained in an end-to-end manner by using the standard deep neural network framework. Experimental results show that cmSalGAN achieves the new state-of-the-art RGB-D saliency detection performance on several benchmark datasets.
