In this paper, the issue of scale is addressed in the context of salient object detection. To date, many single scale models have been proposed for detecting salient objects within a scene. Scale is a fundamental problem within image processing, and therefore, multiple scale techniques are investigated and evaluated, as well the presentation of a novel multi-scale saliency model. The proposed model is compared with two state-of-the-art multi-scale saliency algorithms and qualitatively evaluated with respect to algorithmic accuracy and efficiency on the publicly available MSRA10K salient object dataset.
