A visual attention model combining top-down and bottom-up mechanisms for salient object detection
Selective attention in the human visual system is performed as the way that humans focus on the most important parts when observing a visual scene. Many bottom-up computational mo...

Where to Look Next? Combining Static and Dynamic Proto-objects in a TVA-based Model of Visual Attention
To decide ``Where to look next ?'' is a central function of the attention system of humans, animals and robots. Control of attention depends on three factors, that is, lo...
