Structuring and augmenting a visual personal diary (2008)

Abstract This paper refers to research in the domain of visual lifelogging, whereby individuals capture much of their lives using digital cameras. The potential benefits of lifelogging include: applications to review tourist trips, memory aid applications, learning assistants, etc. The SenseCam, developed by Microsoft Research in Cambridge, UK, is a small wearable device which incorporates a digital camera and onboard sensors (motion, ambient temperature, light level, and passive infrared to detect presence of people). There exists a number of challenges in managing the vast quantities of data generated by lifelogging devices such as the SenseCam. Our work concentrates on the following areas withing visual lifelogging: Segmenting sequences of images into events (e.g. breakfast, at meeting); retrieving similar events (what other times was I at the park?); determining most important events (meeting an old friend is more important than breakfast); selection of ideal keyframe to provide an event summary; and augmenting lifeLog events with images taken by millions of users from "Web 2.0" websites (show me other pictures of the Statue of Liberty to augment my own lifelog images).
