When watching pictures or videos, the Human Visual System has the potential to concentrate on important locations. Saliency detection is a tool for detecting the abnormality and randomness of images or videos by replicating the human visual system. Video saliency detection has received a lot of attention in recent decades, but due to challenging temporal abstraction and fusion for spatial saliency, computational modelling of spatial perception for video sequences is still limited.Unlike methods for detection of salient objects in still images, one of the most difficult aspects of video saliency detection is figuring out how to isolate and integrate spatial and temporal features.Saliency detection, which is basically a tool to recognize areas in images and videos that catch the attention of the human visual system, may benefit multimedia applications such as video or image retrieval, copy detection, and so on. As the two crucial steps in trajectory-based video classification methods are feature point identification and local feature extraction. We suggest a new spatio-temporal saliency detection using an enhanced 3D Conventional neural network with an inclusion of histogram for optical and orient gradient in this paper.
