Source Code

  • demo.m: demonstrates the usage of this package.
  • src/common/config.m defines the configuration parameters.
  • src/common/normalise.m normalises a saliency map.
  • src/dataset/computeFixationMaps.m generates the human fixation maps.
  • src/dataset/showEyeData.m visualises the scanpaths of a given subject.
  • src/metric/computeShuffleMap.m computes the shuffle map for sAUC evaluation.
  • src/metric/evaluateSaliencyMaps.m evaluates the predicted saliency maps.
  • src/model/collectFeatures.m collects features for training and testing.
  • src/model/computeIttiMaps.m computes the pixel-level feature maps (Itti & Koch model).
  • src/model/computeCrowdStats.m computes the crowd statistics (density level, size, density, etc.)
  • src/model/computeFaceMaps.m computes the face feature maps.
  • src/model/splitData.m splits the data into training and testing sets.
  • src/model/sampling.m samples training data.
  • src/model/training_mkl.m calls the simplemkl functions for model training.
  • src/model/trainModel.m trains the saliency model.
  • src/model/computeSaliencyMaps.m computes the predicted saliency maps.


  • data/stimuli/*.jpg stimuli files
  • data/eye/fixations.mat eye-tracking data (fixation points and durations)
  • data/labels.mat manually labelled faces (including ROIs and attributes)


Getting Started

Open Matlab and run demo.m to compute the fixation maps, the feature maps, to learn and evaluate the saliency model.
