Pilot study to investigate feasibility of visual lifelog exploration in virtual reality (2017)

Abstract The prevalence of modern technology has enabled people to record a digital trove of life experiences and these datasets continue to grow exponentially day by day. Exploring these huge datasets effectively has been the subject of much research in the lifelogging community. In this paper we describe a pilot study performed to investigate the feasibility of using virtual reality as a platform for exploring visual lifelog data. The dataset used in this experiment consisted of image data captured by wearable cameras and keywords describing the visual content of each image. The results of this experiment suggested there was no notable reduction in user performance when using the virtual reality platform, compared to a conventional desktop environment. This research was performed as part of a larger study to investigate the overall potential of virtual reality as a platform for visual lifelog exploration.
