Source code for the salient object detection method based on structured matrix decomposition

Source code for the structured matrix decomposition model:


The code is run on MATLAB R2012a-2014a on Windows 7 or Linux  - 32/64 bit.


>> put the input images into file '\INPUT_IMG'
>> put the groundtruth images into file '\GROUND_TRUTH'
>> run 'Demo.m'
the output saliency maps are stored in the file '\SAL_MAP'
>> the evaluation results are stored in the file '\results'
