Brain-Like Computer System Identifies, Predicts Most 'Memorable' Photos

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.

The MemNet system, developed by the school's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Lab, was exposed to thousands of photos, each with a score based on how well humans had proved able to remember them. By closely analyzing the visual features of all these, MemNet determined a pattern of what p...
