Saliency plays a key role in various computer vision tasks. Extracting salient regions from images and videos have been a well established problem of computer vision. While segmenting salient objects from images depend only on static information, temporal information in a video can make non salient objects be salient due to movement. Besides the temporal information, there are other challenges involved with video segmentation, such as 3D parallax, camera shake, motion blur, etc. In this work, we propose a novel unsupervised end to end trainable, fully convolutional deep neural network for object segmentation. Our model is robust and scalable across scenes, as it is tested unsupervisedly and can easily infer which objects constitute the foreground of the image. We run various tests on two well established benchmarks of video object segmentation, DAVIS and FBMS-59 datasets. We report our results and compare them against the state of the art methods.
