Efficient Image Rendering Using a Fuzzy Logic Model of Visual Attention
Brown, Ross A., Pham, Binh L., & Aidman, Eugene (2000) Efficient Image Rendering Using a Fuzzy Logic Model of Visual Attention. In Mohammadian, Masoud (Ed.) Conference: Advances in Intelligent Systems: Theory and Applications (AISTA), Jan 2000, Canberra, Australia.
Physiological research has revealed constructs named "feature detectors" in the human visual system. These detectors react to differences in visual features, marking them as salient and thereby attracting the attention of the viewer. In this paper we outline a fuzzy logic system which processes 3D scene descriptions to compute the relative visual importance of regions in the scene. We detail experiments carried out to obtain parameters for the model, and the methodologies used in the aggregation, implication and defuzzification processes. We finish with a discussion of future work for further refinement of the model. The system is expected to have applications in the area of efficient image synthesis, in particular, progressive rendering and transmission techniques.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
