Brain-Like Computer System Identifies, Predicts Most ‘Memorable’ Photos

MIT / CSAIL Researchers at MIT have created an artificial intelligence system that can predict how “memorable” a photo is and what parts of it will be best remembered. The “MemNet” algorithm is based on “deep-learning” techniques, a new style of AI that uses pattern recognition and processing inspired by the brain’s own networks.

By closely analyzing the visual features of all these, MemNet determined a pattern of what photos were memorable and what objects within them contributed most to that. When presented with new…
