Bottom-Up Visual Attention

In this project, we obtain saliency maps from color images using perceptual characteristics of the CIWaM (Chromatic Induction Wavelet Model).

Matlab code for saliency estimation

Matlab code for our saliency estimation method can be found here. For a quick start run "SIM_demo.m." Information can be found in the README file.
