Abstract : Considering the gap between low-level image features and high-level retrieval concept, this paper investigates the effect of incorporating visual saliency based features for content-based image retrieval(CBIR).Visual saliency plays an important role in human perception due to its capability to focus the attention on the point of interest, i.e. an intended target. This selection based processing can be well explored in localized CBIR systems, since in context of CBIR the users will be interested only in certain parts of the image. The proposed methodology uses Dynamic Mode Decomposition framework to extract the saliency map which highlights the part of the image that grabs human attention. Then, based on the saliency map, an efficient salient edge detection model is introduced. Visual saliency based features (salient region, edge) are then combined with texture and color features to formulate the high dimensional feature vector for image retrieval. State-of-the-art learning based CBIR models demands for user feed back to model the retrieval concept. In contrast with these models, proposed CBIR system does not require any user interaction, since it uses perceptual level features for the retrieval task. Performance of the proposed CBIR system is evaluated and confirmed on images from Wang’s dataset using benchmark evaluation metrics like precision and recall. Experimental results reveals that incorporation of saliency features can represent human perception well and produces good retrieval performance.
