Abstract

Visual attention in a scene has been the focus of study for many years and several theories have been advanced to explain human attention behaviour and fixation patterns. Of particular interest to us is the concept of bottom-up visual stimulus-driven saliency. AIM (Attention based on Information Maximization) is a computational model that mimics the interaction between a local cell's activation and the activation of cells in the larger surrounding neighborhood. AIM explains the concept of visual salience in terms of the amount of information present in an image patch within the context of its surround - i.e. how likely the patch is to appear with respect to its surround.
