A detailed discussion of the ROI detection algorithm can be found here, with examples:

This is an implementation of the algorithm described in our paper [1]. The input is any map generated by saliency detection algorithms like Itti-Koch [2] or GBVS [3]. The algorithm outputs a binary mask without requiring a threshold for the saliency map. More details about it are described in our paper.
