Scientists including an Indian-origin scientist from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new algorithm that by subtle exaggeration of already distinctive facial features increases the memorability of a face without changing individual's appearance much.


Lead author Aditya Khosla said that they want to modify the extent to which people will actually remember a face, asserting that this is a very subtle quality, as they don't want to take people's face and replace it with the most memorable one in their database, the Independent reported.

The researchers suggest that the final algorithm can work from a smartphone, which modifies users' digital images to develop more memorable versions for social networking sites and job applications.

Researchers developed the software by creating a database of more than 2,000 faces, and awarded each of them with a 'memorability score' based on how easily volunteers' recognized the individuals.
