The necessity of Detection and Recognition of main point of interest or salient point has become very common due to the large tracking application and adaptive image compression applications. Every application oriented to the open space shall need to acquire the relevant target to be focused on. Saliency Detection is the area dealing with Detection and Recognition of main point of interest in a picture. This action, which is very basic to human brain and eye, is very complex to the machine.
2 main types of approach are implemented: The computational and algorithmical approach, and Emulation of the human brain cognitive abilities. Computational and algorithmical approach was implemented for this project.
The scope of this project is to define and implement a system that will be able to detect and recognize the salient point of a given picture. An extensive literature survey was performed in order to study different algorithms.
