Managed Forgetting, Data Condensation & Preservation in Application
With an increasing amount of available sensors lifelogging produces more and more data. Thus, realizing necessary condensation and forgetting processes becomes a challenge. In the last three years we investigated Managed Forgetting, Synergetic Preservation and Contextualized Remembering in the so-called ForgetIT project. Using the Semantic Desktop as an ecosystem we have already applied these approaches to personal information management successfully. With these experiences at hand we think that lifelogging could also benefit from these solutions. On the other hand, achievements and findings of the lifelogging community can help us in realizing one of our newest visions. In this paper we will provide more details of our data condensation, preservation and managed forgetting solutions and show how lifelogging could benefit from them. Additionally, we sketch our newest application scenario of a context-focused work environment that will make use of lifelogging technologies.
