Visual Attention for Light Fields

13th January 2020

Light fields have become a major research topic in recent years. Even though there are now efforts in different applications such as compression, display, and post-processing, the human visual perception for light fields is rarely studied. In this project, we study the visual attention and saliency aspects for the light fields. There are several challenges to this task. In a recent submission, we try to address these challenges and build a dataset.

If our submission is accepted, the created dataset will be made publicly available in this webpage.

Additional Results

Due to the page limit of the venue to which we submitted our work, we could not provide all the results in the manuscript. Here we will share additional results for our study.


The Light Field Visual Attention Dataset can be downloaded here [to be updated].
