Not all the visual information acquired by the eyes is processed by the human visual system. Human visual attention selects information most relevant to the task being attended. Unexpected objects get overlooked when we are busy attending something else. Inattentional blindness is a psychological phenomenon where a visual stimulus goes unnoticed by the observer. This paper presents a research study on using subliminal cues to cause subliminal attention shift in a video scene showcasing inattentional blindness. The goal of this work is to develop and optimize video processing systems for applications such as surveillance and driving safety. Preliminary results indicated that subliminal visual cueing helped in making aware of other objects or events happening in a scene other than the prime task.

  • For more than 30 years, the Electronic Imaging Symposium has been serving those in the broad community - from academia and industry - who work on imaging science and digital technologies. The breadth of the Symposium covers the entire imaging science ecosystem, from capture (sensors, camera) through image processing (image quality, color and appearance) to how we and our surrogate machines see and interpret images. Applications covered include augmented reality, autonomous vehicles, machine vision, data analysis, digital and mobile photography, security, virtual reality, and human vision. IS&T began sole sponsorship of the meeting in 2016. All papers presented at EIs 20+ conferences are open access.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
