Abstract: In this paper, a novel and efficient framework by exploiting Quaternionic Distance Based Weber Local Descriptor (QDWLD) and object cues is proposed for image saliency detection. In contrast to the existing saliency detection models, the advantage of the proposed approach is that it can combine quaternion number system and object cues simultaneously, which is independent of image contents and scenes. Firstly, QDWLD, which was initially designed for detecting outliers in color images, is used to represent the directional cues in an image. Meanwhile, two low-level priors, namely the Convex-Hull-Based center and color contrast cue of the image, are utilized and fused as an object-level cue. Finally, by combining QDWLD with object cues, a reliable saliency map of the image can be computed and estimated. Experimental results, based on two widely used and openly available database, show that the proposed method is able to produce reliable and promising salient maps/estimations, compared to other state-of-the-art saliency-detection models.
