The past years have seen a growing interest in augmenting human cognition – attention, engagement, memory, learning, etc – through ubiquitous technologies. With the ongoing research and development of near-constant capture devices, unlimited storage, and algorithms for processing and retrieving captured recordings, the resulting personal “lifelogs” have opened the door to a vast range of applications. In the third rendition of this workshop series, we focus on technologies and applications of capturing and integrating personal experiences into everyday use cases. With the question What constitutes a modern lifelog?, we would like to invite researchers, designers, and practitioners to envision and exchange ideas on how ubiquitous technologies and applications can help enhance human cognition in everyday life. For example, search requests may no longer purely retrieve information from online archives, but take into account personal experiences. In this one-day workshop, we would like to formulate visions and concrete application scenarios for making use of ubiquitous technologies in order to push personal data to an application layer where it is used to support and augment human cognition and the human mind.
