Abstract

Ubiquitous sensing will soon allow us to record any moment of our lives. These moments can be restored and used to create radically new ways of aiding human memory. The goal with memory aids is: recalling what matters. This implies retrieving relevant information at the right time to the right extent and in a context-driven way. We are looking for visions and research projects that aim to re-think and re-define the notion of memory augmentation. The goal is to combine technological innovations in ubiquitous computing with basic research questions in memory psychology, thereby elevating memory augmentation technologies from a clinical niche application to a mainstream technology and initiating a major change in the way we use technology to remember and to externalize memory. This workshop will bring together researchers, designers and practitioners at the intersection of technology and cognitive psychology to discuss elements and viewpoints of forms of e-memory and new forms of memory aids.
