A simple selfie may be more memorable than a stunning landscape, predicts MIT algorithm

Scientists at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have developed a predictive algorithm that will help determine whether a particular photo is memorable or not. The MemNet brain-like computer system uses artificial intelligence to identify parts of a photo that leave the most impression and predicts whether a person will remember a photo or forget it completely.  According to Elle, the algorithm has “near-human levels” of judgment. It has implications beyond simply making one’s photo stand out from others’. The algorithm can be used to develop effective advertising and marketing strategies, teaching resources and memory improvement techniques. With more focus on research, the algorithm might have the power to capture most important information and also store information that human mind is most likely to forget. Instagrammers and selfie-lovers…
