Well, Ho Ho Ho then and how about this:


This is not the original Itti & Koch algorithm, and we have not tested here but the docs suggest that python bindings are available and pretty easy to use:

from https://docs.opencv.org/3.4.1/d9/dcd/classcv_1_1saliency_1_1Saliency.html#aeee4f8dae6dd3201fe8569bb7c4b7e19

retval, saliencyMap = cv.saliency_Saliency.computeSaliency(image[, saliencyMap])
