Humans have a general understanding about their environment. We possess a sense of distinction between what is consistent and inconsistent about the environment based on our prior experience. Any aspect of the scene that does not fit into this definition of normalcy tends to be classified as a novel event. An example of this is a casual observer standing over a bridge on a freeway, tracking vehicle traffic, where the vehicles traveling at or around the same speed limit are generally ignored and

In this paper, we extend a computational learning based framework for detecting inconsistent regions in a video sequence detection. The framework extracts low-level features from scenes, based on the focus of attention theory and combines unsupervised learning with habituation theory for learning these features. The paper presents results from our experiments on natural video streams for identifying inconsistency in velocity of moving objects and also the static changes in the scene.
