Image memorability represents the degree to which images are remembered or forgotten after a period of time. Studying image memorability in computer vision is the task of finding special characteristics in memorable images, in order to develop a representative model of this type of images. Several approaches have been realised to examine features that can affect image memorability. In this study, the authors use bag-of-features as another kind of visual feature descriptor to assess image memorability. The authors' method based on bag-of-visual-words (BoVWs) technique involves four main steps. First, the authors extract local image features from regions/points of interest which are automatically detected. Then, they encode these local features by mapping them to a created visual vocabulary. Later, the authors apply features pooling and normalisation techniques to obtain image BoVW representation. Finally, the authors use this representation to examine image memorability as a problem of classification. They present different implementation choices for each step and compare reached results. The authors' method performs best significant results in comparison with other approaches found in literature. © The Institution of Engineering and Technology.
