It consists of five parts: (1) the VGG16 model is used to extract the high-level features of the original image, forming an initial saliency map; (2) we obtain the image pyramid by multiscale segmentation and apply the VGG16 model with a spatial pyramid pooling layer to each scale of the image pyramid to form the deep pyramid; (3) the saliency map based on the deep pyramid is mapped with superpixel segmentation to extract low-level features; (4) background noise filtering structure; and
The background noise was recorded at the output of each of the microphones.
