Graph-based methods have been widely adopted to detect salient objects in images. However, there are two limitations of these methods. First, only one kind of query is employed for saliency propagation on the graph. Second, these methods only represent pairwise relations between vertices and thus give an incomplete representation of the relationships between image regions. In this paper, we propose a foreground- and background-queries-based hypergraph optimization framework for salient region detection. In this framework, both foreground queries and background queries are explicitly exploited to uniformly highlight the salient foreground and suppress the non-salient background. Furthermore, ..
