In this letter, we use the saliency maps obtained by several bottom-up methods to learn a model to generate a bottom-up saliency map. In order to consider top-down image semantics, we use the high-level features of objectness and background probability to learn a top-down saliency map. The bottom-up map and top-down map are combined through a two-layer structure. Quantitative experiments demonstrate that the proposed method and features are effective to predict human fixation.
