Our Digital Human Memory project (Lin & Hauptmann, 2002) aims to collect and index every aspect of human daily experiences in digital form. By wearing a spy camera, microphones, and a BodyMedia armband, the wearer can collect rich records in a unobtrutive fashion, and many applications can build on top of such multimodal collections. For example, digital human memory can serve as a memory prosthesis to help the wearer recall past events; the habits or anomalies of the wearer can be analyzed from digital human memory. The physiological recordings recorded by a Bodymedia armband provides complementary dimensions of the wearer’s experiences, and play an important role in identifying wearer’s context and activities.
