This code implements the proposed salient/co-salient object detection algorithm in the following paper:

This algorithm can be run in a row by the command:
This algorithm reads the input images from the folder
<images>and generates two resultant folders:
To regenerate the single-layer saliency maps of CNS  and RBD , please DELETE the subfolders
<L1>, <L2>, and <L3>in the folders
<CNS> and <RBD>and rerun
We have noted that different versions of MATLAB have substantial influences on the edge detection results. In our experiments, both CNS, RBD, and HCN are all run in MATLAB R2017a (version 9.2).
