Gurrin C., Smeaton AF., Qiu Z., Doherty A.
Ambiently and automatically maintaining a lifelog is an activity that may help individuals track their lifestyle, learning, health and productivity. In this paper we mo- tivate and discuss the technical challenges of developing real-world lifelogging solutions, based on seven years of experience. The gathering, organisation, retrieval and presentation challenges of large-scale lifelogging are dis- cussed and we show how this can be achieved and the benefits that may accrue. Copyright 2013 ACM.
