*Title:
Lifelogging. Creating the Personal Digital Assistant.

*Abstract:
Lifelogging is a form of pervasive computing which represents 
a phenomenon whereby people can digitally record their own daily lives
in varying amounts of detail, for a variety of purposes. In a sense it
represents the ultimate “black box” of a human’s life activities and it
offers huge potential for mining or inferring knowledge to assist us in
daily life. We are currently observing a convergence of technologies
which are creating the conditions for the emergence of lifelogging as a
mainstream activity; computer storage has become cheap, there are readily 
available sensing technologies for both the person as well as location
 and environment and there is growing interest in the phenomenon of 
sensing and recording oneself, the quantified-self movement.

In this talk I will introduce and motivate the concept of maintaining
lifelogs,which are set to revolutionize our personal lives, healthcare,
learning and productivity. I will discuss my own motivation for becoming
a lifelogger, as well as what I have learned from this process. With the viewpoint of an Information Retrieval scientist, I will motivate and describe 
the technical challenges to be addressed and introduce the research 
to address these challenges, research that points to the potential 
advances when cognitive science meets computer science. Finally, I 
will introduce the technologies under development at various locations 
that attempt to efficiently gather flexible and extensible
lifelogs. My experiences motivate this talk, as well as a passion for
researching the technical challenges of Lifelogging.

*Biography: 
Cathal Gurrin is a lecturer at the School of Computing, at Dublin
City University, Ireland and he is an investigator at the Insight Centre
for Data Analytics. Cathal is really a ‘hands-on’ researcher, so since
June 2006, he has ‘lived his research’ and worn various sensing devices
during waking hours. He has amassed a huge archive of 14 million
wearable camera photos, weeks of video, sound samples and various other
sensors such as location, movement, and nearby people. His research team
is exploring how they can develop quantified self and lifelogging
technologies that can have positive benefits in the real-world, with an
initial focus on personalised healthcare and digital lifelogs. He has
been the General Chair of ECIR 2011 and MMM 2014; he was the PC co-chair
of ECIR 2010 and Sensecam 2013; and he was the posters/demos chair of ACM 
SIGIR 2013 and the demos chair of CIKM 2010.
