In this paper we address the issue of enhancing salient object detection through diffusion-based techniques. For reliably diffusing the energy from labeled seeds, we propose a novel graph-based diffusion scheme called affinity learning-based diffusion (ALD), which is based on learning full-range affinity between two arbitrary graph nodes. The method differs from the previous existing work where implicit diffusion was formulated as a ranking problem on a graph. In the proposed method, the affinity learning is achieved in a unified graph-based semi-supervised manner, whose outcome is leveraged for global propagation. By properly selecting an affinity learning model, the proposed ALD outperforms the ranking-based diffusion in terms of accurately detecting salient objects and enhancing the correct salient objects under a range of background scenarios. By utilizing the ALD, we propose an enhanced saliency detector that outperforms 7 recent state-of-the-art saliency models on 3 benchmark datasets.
