Deep-Learning Algorithm Can Determine Memorability Of Images With Human Accuracy

A new computer algorithm can determine how forgettable your latest selfie is. By Tyler MacDonald | Dec 17, 2015 09:33 AM EST The algorithm is planned to be integrated into social media and advertise technologies. (Photo : Twitter/bayareasea) Researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have created a computer algorithm that can predict the memorability of an image almost as accurately as a human. The findings, are planned for use in an app that will subtly alter photos in order to make them more memorable. “Understanding memorability can help us make systems to capture the most important information, or, conversely, to store information that humans will most likely forget,” Aditya Khosla, lead author of the paper, said in a press release. “It’s like having an instant focus group that tells…
