Abstract :

In this presentation, I will present my main research topics, namely the modelling of visual attention and image editing. The former deals with the bottom-up computational models which predict where people look within a scene. From an incoming image, such models output a 2D map which indicates the salient locations of the input image. This map is well known as the saliency map. Performance and limitations of existing models will be underlined and discussed. I will also introduce some saliency-based applications.
Regarding the second research topic, e.g. image editing, I will focus more specifically on exemplar-based image inpainting methods. I will present our contributions in this field.

Finally, I will draw some conclusions and presents some future works dealing perceptual-based image editing methods.
