The process spreads importance over nodes based on the ‘probabilistic centrality’ method that takes into account the direction of edges to either augment or penalize the salience of nodes, based on their neighbors’ salience.
MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
Our method does not deduce salience based on the centrality or connectedness of graph vertices.
MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
A problem that is somewhat complementary to salience selection is that of redundancy detection.
MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
Whereas salience, which is a desired attribute for the information chunks in the summary, can be detected via measuring the similarity of these chunks to a query, redundancy indicates the unwanted repetition of information.
MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
This information has been used to determine the salience of information chunks in section 4.3.

MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
To identify whether this splitting of the sentence into smaller parts makes any difference in judging the salience of a sentence, we perform experiments (see section 5) taking into account two alternatives: creating a graph per sentence versus creating a graph per chunk.
MUDOS-NG: Multi-document Summaries Using N-gram Graphs (Tech Report)
This way a sentence is split into a set of chunks, that can be then assigned salience, during the content selection process.

Table 1 shows two instance image pairs and their important regions with Saliency toolbox1 and stereo depth map. Saliency map is about to left image.
Picture Collage with Genetic Algorithm and Stereo vision
As can be seen in figure 5(c) the most important regions of each image is visible in the final result. Instead of the depth map image, we used saliency map for comparison purposes.
Picture Collage with Genetic Algorithm and Stereo vision
As can be seen the proposed method is competitive with the saliency map.
