MIT Researchers Train An Algorithm To Predict How Boring Your Selfie Is

Researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab (CSAIL) have created an algorithm they claim can predict how memorable or forgettable an image is almost as accurately as a human — which is to say that their tech can predict how likely a person would be to remember or forget a particular photo.The algorithm performed 30 per cent better than existing algorithms and was within a few percentage points of the average human performance, according to the researchers. The team has put a demo of their tool online here, where you can upload your selfie to get a memorability score and view a heat map showing areas the algorithm considers more or less memorable. They have also published a paper on the research which can be found here. Here are some examples of…
