Title

A Predictive Processing Account of bottom-up visual saliency using cross-predicting autoencoders.

 

Abstract

We propose a novel predictive processing account of bottom-up visual saliency in which salience is simply the low-level prediction error between the sense-data and the predictions produced by the generative models in the brain. We corroborate this hypothesis with modelling in which cross-predicting deep autoencoders are used to create salience maps in an entirely unsupervised way. The resulting maps closely mimic experimentally derived human saliency maps and also spontaneously learn a centre bias, a robust viewing behavior seen in human participants.
