Abstract. In this paper we present a discussion of information processing context and how we believe a visual attention system should be influenced by contextual information. We support this argument with a proof-of-concept design and implementation of a context-sensitive extension to the Itti & Koch model of visual attention as part of an architecture for a cognitive system. Our model demonstrates improved performance in terms of both fixations and processing time on visual search tasks compared to the non-extended model.
