An Information Theoretic Model of Saliency and Visual Search
In this paper, a proposal which quantifies visual saliency based on an information theoretic definition is evaluated with respect to visual psychophysics paradigms. Analysis reveals that the proposal explains a broad range of results from classic visual search tasks, including many for which only specialized models have had success. As a whole, the results provide strong behavioral support for a model of visual saliency based on information, supplementing earlier work revealing the efficacy of the approach in predicting primate fixation data.
