This new algorithm can tell you how memorable (or forgettable) your selfies are

Anybody with a smartphone knows the problem of snapping too many photos, with an itchy shutter finger quickly leading to hundreds of images that need to be sorted and culled. But new software from researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) could help photographers curate and keep only the best images, thanks to an algorithm that can detect how memorable or forgettable they are almost as accurately as a human can. The “MemNet” algorithm uses deep learning techniques, relying on a neural network that has learned to identify image patterns based on how memorable they are. You can try it out for yourself here by uploading your own photos or linking to images online. “Understanding memorability can help us make systems to capture the most important information, or, conversely,…
