Abstract: Visually conspicuous, or so-called salient, stimuli often have the capability of attracting focal visual attention towards their locations. Several computational architectures subserving this bottom-up, stimulus-driven, spatiotemporal deployment of attention are reviewed in this article. The resulting computational models have applications not only to the prediction of visual search psychophysics, but also, in the domain of machine vision, to the rapid selection of regions of interest in complex, cluttered visual environments. We describe an unusal such application, to the objective evaluation of advertising designs.
