Cross-modality Discrepant Interaction Network for RGB-D Salient Object Detection
The popularity and promotion of depth maps have brought new vigor and vitality into salient object detection (SOD), and a mass of RGB-D SOD algorithms have been proposed, mainly concentrating on how to better integrate cross-modality features from RGB image and depth map. For the cross-modality interaction in feature encoder, existing methods either indiscriminately treat RGB and depth modalities, or only habitually utilize depth cues as auxiliary information of the RGB branch. Different from them, we reconsider the status of two modalities and propose a novel Cross-modality Discrepant Interaction Network (CDINet) for RGB-D SOD, which differentially models the dependence of two modalities according to the feature representations of different layers. To this end, two components are designed to implement the effective cross-modality interaction: 1) the RGB-induced Detail Enhancement (RDE) module leverages RGB modality to enhance the details of the depth features in low-level encoder stage. 2) the Depth-induced Semantic Enhancement (DSE) module transfers the object positioning and internal consistency of depth features to the RGB branch in high-level encoder stage. Furthermore, we also design a Dense Decoding Reconstruction (DDR) structure, which constructs a semantic block by combining multi-level encoder features to upgrade the skip connection in the feature decoding. Extensive experiments on five benchmark datasets demonstrate that our network outperforms $15$ state-of-the-art methods both quantitatively and qualitatively.
