Talk Title: Understanding, Predicting, and Manipulating Image Memorability with Representation Learning

Abstract: Everyday, we are bombarded with hundreds of images on our smart phone, on television, or in print. Recent work shows that images differ in their memorability, some stick in our mind while others are fade away quickly, and this phenomenon is consistent across people. While it has been shown that memorability is an intrinsic feature of an image, still it’s largely unknown what features make images memorable. In this talk, I will present a series of our studies which aim to address this question by proposing a fast representation learning approach to modify and control the memorability of images. The proposed method can be employed in photograph editing applications for social media, learning aids, or advertisement purposes.

CTN Research Day Sept 27 15:00-17:30 DWE 3516

The Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience will be hosting its first Research Day. This will be a chance to start the new academic year by getting re-acquainted with each other and the diversity of research conducted by CTN core and affiliate faculty. The format will be to have a number of CTN faculty share short overviews of their lab's and projects (15:00-16:00) and then, following a short coffee break (16:00-16:30), hear from a dozen current graduate students and post-docs giving short three minute talks on an aspect of their current research (16:30-17:30).
