Paper Abstract

In this paper, we propose an alternative salient object detection method based on maximum saliency region and density. The proposed approach can automatically detect the salient object with a well-defined boundary. Saliency region and density maximization is used as the quality function to find the optimal window containing a salient object. And for efficiently executing window search, a branch-and-bound search algorithm based on saliency region and density is proposed. Then the located window is used to initialize the GrabCut method, and the salient object with a well- defined boundary is extracted through applying GrabCut. Experimental results show that the proposed salient object detection approach outperforms the state-of-the-art methods.
