Image saliency detection is an important research topic in the field of computer vision. With the traditional saliency detection models, the texture details are not obvious and the edge contour is not complete. The accuracy and recall rate of object detection are low, which are mostly based on the manual features and prior information. With the rise of deep convolutional neural networks, saliency detection has been rapidly developed. However, the existing saliency methods still have some common shortcomings, and it is difficult to uniformly highlight the clear boundary and internal region of the whole object in complex images, mainly because of the lack of sufficient and rich features. In this paper, a new frog leaping algorithm-oriented fully convolutional neural network is proposed for dance motion object saliency detection. The VGG (Visual Geometry Group) model is improved. The final full connection layer is removed, and the jump connection layer is used for the saliency prediction, which can effectively combine the multi-scale information from different convolution layers in the convolutional neural network. Meanwhile, an improved frog leaping algorithm is used to optimize the selection of initial weights during network initialization. In the process of network iteration, the forward propagation loss of convolutional neural network is calculated, and the anomaly weight is corrected by using the improved frog leaping algorithm. When the network satisfies the terminal conditions, the final weight is optimized by one frog leaping to make the network weight further optimization. In addition, the new network can combine high-level semantic information and low-level detail information in a data-driven framework. In order to preserve the unity of the object boundary and inner region effectively, the fully connected conditional random field (CRF) model is used to adjust the obtained saliency feature map. In this paper, the precision recall (PR) curve, F-measure, maximum F-measure, weighted F-measure and mean absolute error (MAE) are tested on six widely used public data sets. Compared with other most advanced and representative methods, the results show that the proposed method achieves better performance and it is superior to most representative methods. The presented method reveals that it has strong robustness for image saliency detection with various scenes, and can make the boundary and inner region of the saliency object more uniform and the detection results more accurate.
