When you say that a photograph is burned into your memory, it turns out you’re not really exaggerating. According to new research from scientists at MIT, certain photographs have a specific sort of staying power that makes them incredibly memorable. Now, the team has created an artificial intelligence system that can actually predict how well your brain will retain a certain image, and which aspects of it will leave the deepest impression. It’s all thanks to deep learning and a pretty advanced algorithm, enabling a computer to tell how memorable a photo in the same way your brain does.

To try the technology out for yourself, simply head over to the LaMem Demo website, where you can upload a photo and determine its memorability score (as assigned by the algorithm, and by extension, your brain). The tool was created after researchers conducted a crowd-sourced experiment involving  5,000 online participants, each of whom were given a set of photos to analyze and then asked to press a key when they came across a familiar image. This data, as well as the particular features of the familiar pictures, was then translated into a memorability score between 0 and 1.
