From personal data to human ledger

How to have a search engine for your personal experience?


12. June.

Time: 10:00 - 10:30


This presentation will give an overview of past efforts to capture personal life archives (which contain information about every activity an individual participates in, such as where they go, how they get there, who they speak with, what they see and what information they access) in the research community, and try to inspire and motivate people to use their know-how in this new emerging and societal important area.

The speaker will also propose and discuss how future personal life archive data should be stored and organised, and therefore made easy for a user to access via an appropriate search mechanism. This seminar will be held in English.
