Rather then completing the academic and industrial expectancies, the impressing number of state-of-the-art saliency oriented studies open new fundamental questions about the very nature of this psycho-cognitive process:

  • is saliency extraction proper to the (visual) content or rather influenced by the (digital) format; in other words, pixel, transform or compressed domain saliency extraction are equally good? 
  • is saliency extraction generic with respect to a targeted applicative field or should/can it be matched to the application peculiarities? 
  • makes it sens to speak about a general saliency model or it would be better to adapt  the saliency extraction procedure to the content (or, at least, to the class of content) being process?
  • how is human fixation influenced by multi-views video representations (stereoscopic, …, 360 video)?
  • How to predict both bottom-up and top-down attention?
