We show that moving objects can be detected from optical flow without using any knowledge about the magnitude of the noise in the flow or any thresholds to be adjusted empirically. The underlying principle is viewing a particular interpretation about the flow as a geometric model and comparing the relative "goodness" of candidate models measured by the geometric AIC.
