Source code for our CVPR 2015 work on saliency detection by multi-context deep learning.

Created by Rui Zhao, on May 21, 2015

Summary

This source code is mainly written in Python and bash shell scripts, and it is for the following paper:

  • Rui Zhao, Wanli Ouyang, Hongsheng Li, and Xiaogang Wang. Saliency Detection by Multi-Context Deep Learning. In CVPR 2015.

Usage

  • Supported OS: this source code was tested on 64-bit Arch Linux OS, and it should also be executable in other linux distributions.
  • Pre-installations: refer to caffe for packages required by caffe toolkit. Packages requried by Python scripts include
    • skimage
    • leveldb
    • matplotlib
  • Download caffe models: cd models/ && sh get_models.sh && cd .. (or you can download manually via Baidu Yun: http://pan.baidu.com/s/1sjoP8Ln Password: enn9)
  • Customize test images: put your test images in folder ./images, or revise the test_folder in get_deep_mutlicontext_saliency.sh to your customized image folder.
  • Run demo in bash shell:
        sh get_deep_mutlicontext_saliency.sh

Remark

  • Caffe-sal is a customized version of original caffe toolkit. Comparing the original version, revisions happen in the following files:

    • ./caffe-sal/src/caffe/layers/mcwindowdatalayers.cpp
    • ./caffe-sal/src/caffe/layers/mcwindowdatalayers.cu
    • ./caffe-sal/src/caffe/proto/caffe.proto
    • ./caffe-sal/src/caffe/layer_factory.cpp
    • ./caffe-sal/include/caffe/data_layers.hpp
  • Test folder can be set in ./get_deep_multicontext_saliency.sh

  • This source code requires GPU to accelerate the testing process

  • If everything runs correctly, it will generate resulting saliency maps in test folder (./images), suffix _sc means results produced by single-context deep model, and _mc by multi-context deep model.
