The New York Times profiles Aude Oliva's research on face memorability
December 31, 2013
The New York Times recently profiled new research from Principal Investigator Aude Oliva, who generated a computer algorithm that can subtly modify the image of a person’s face to make it easier or harder to remember. Check out the story.
The team presented volunteers with thousands of images of faces and evaluated their ability to remember them. In their findings, Oliva's group discussed the potential implications of being able to make facial images more memorable, ranging from mnemonic aids for learning, to photo-editing applications for designing effective advertisements.
