Salient Object Detection via Objectess Measure


This demo shows how to use Saliency Objectness [1], as well as Saliency Optimization [2], Saliency Filter [3], Geodesic Saliency [4], and Manifold Ranking [5].

Visit our Project Webpage for more details

Code for [1] by Sai Srivatsa R
Code for [2,3,4,5] by Wangjiang Zhu

If you use this code, please cite both [1] and [2].


To run the demo for default images stored in Data\SRC and to perform evaluation run: >>demo.
The saliency maps are stored in Data\Res .

To obtain saliency maps for custom images using our approach and other methods:

  1. Add the required files to Data\SRC .
  2. Add the Objectness Proposals generated by BING [6] to BingBoxes\ .
  3. Now run the demo: >>demo.

To evaluate our approach and other methods:

  1. add the ground truth images to Data\GT.
  2. Now run the demo: >>demo.
