This seminar introduces the topic lifelogging, exploring the current state-of-the-art technology and looking forward to a future in which lifelog archives may become commonplace. The current approaches to semantic enrichment are explored, along with applications and user interfaces.
In an era of personal data, Facebook, Twitter, digital photos and many other activities all leave significant trails of personal data. One aspect of personal data gathering that is receiving increasing attention is the concept of lifelogging. Lifelogging is concerned with utilising sensors to create a large archives of personal data, or a surrogate memory for the individual. Applying semantic enrichment and organisational software over this data results in the creation of a lifelog for the individual. Lifelogging has been described as an inevitability and is expected to change life experience for all. Finally, lifelogging raises many societal issues, among them privacy and data security, which will be explored and solutions proposed. This video should be of interest to a wide range of academics and interested parties.
