Functional Description: This is a public implementation of the method described in the following paper: Learning Motion Patterns in Videos [CVPR 2017].

The problem of determining whether an object is in motion, irrespective of the camera motion, is far from being solved. We address this challenging task by learning motion patterns in videos. The core of our approach is a fully convolutional network, which is learnt entirely from synthetic video sequences, and their ground-truth optical flow and motion segmentation. This encoder-decoder style architecture first learns a coarse representation of the optical flow field features, and then refines it iteratively to produce motion labels at the original high-resolution. The output label of each pixel denotes whether it has undergone independent motion, i.e., irrespective of the camera motion. We demonstrate the benefits of this learning framework on the moving object segmentation task, where the goal is to segment all the objects in motion. To this end we integrate an objectness measure into the framework. Our approach outperforms the top method on the recently released DAVIS benchmark dataset, comprising real-world sequences, by 5.6
