摘要：The research of image memorability has received increasing attention recently. In this paper, the influence of the visual attention based features on image memorability is explored, which is different from most of the existing studies focusing on various appearance features. In this paper, the dataset used by Isola et al. are adopted. The visual saliency map of each image in the dataset is generated via the visual attention model. The corresponding object-saliency map is obtained by replacing each object with its average visual saliency. The global, local, and joint spatial histograms based on the object-saliency map are obtained and the relationship between visual attention and memorability is explored based on these visual attention based features. The experiments are carried out by using two existing visual attention models and demonstrate that these mentioned visual attention based features are more effective than the appearance features to predict the image memorability. © Springer International Publishing Switzerland 2015.
