Visual Saliency Estimation is a computer vision problem that aims to find the regions of interest that are frequently in eye focus in a scene or an image. Since most computer vision problems require discarding irrelevant regions in a scene, visual saliency estimation can be used as a preprocessing step in such problems. In this work, we propose a method to solve top-down saliency estimation problem using Attribute Based Classifiers and Conditional Random Fields (CRF). Experimental results show that attribute-based classifiers encode visual information better than low level features and the presented approach generates promising results compared to state-of-theart approaches on Graz-02 dataset.
