What Makes A Memorable Photo? Computers Can Predict Almost As Well As Humans Can

Artificial intelligence allows computers to look at a photo and predict how memorable people will find it. A ‘deep learning’ algorithm mimics what the human brain does, researchers say.(Photo : MIT) An artificial intelligence algorithm can predict whether a photo will be “memorable” and even tell what parts of it will stick in the memory, researchers at MIT report. Their “MemNet” algorithm does it by utilizing AI “deep learning” techniques involving pattern recognition and processing similar to that employed by the human brain, the team at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory says. “Understanding memorability can help us make systems to capture the most important information, or, conversely, to store information that humans will most likely forget,” explains graduate student Aditya Khosla. “It’s like having an instant focus group…
