Introduction to Lifelogging

Future of Lifelogging

There are many future capabilities and expectations for the use of lifelogging. Of these capabilities includes tracking early onset diseases. Lifelogging can use data from tracking your habits and vitals and see how they can change and show signs of disease and other health problems. Another possibility is to assist with tracking crime and creating alibis, if we can track activity all day we can see who was near a crime scene and create alibis for suspects not involved. In the future we can also see people be tracked with a chip and be able to locate them using gps and track their vitals as well as other metrics.

**Verisense Case Study*

In this lifelogging case study, Verisense used lifelogging equipment to see how peoples emotions were affected while driving at certain speeds. They used 13 participants and tracked them during drives only over 20 minutes. The outcome of the study showed that when driving at a low speed, heart rate and heart rate variability increase. This shows frustration and anger and is just one way that lifelogging equipment can be used in the real world.

+ Gale case study

Numerous uses of lifelogging have been tested, including memory recall, with better outcomes in both healthy individuals and those with memory-impairing diseases. SenseCam is the most widely used and effective gadget for this kind of lifelogging. This is a small, forward-facing camera with basic sensors that is worn around the neck with a lanyard at chest height. Since it lacks a viewfinder and takes pictures automatically every 30 seconds, thousands of first-person perspective photos are shot every day, capturing the wearer's perspective of the environment in front of them rather of the actual person. These encouraging findings of enhanced memory have progressed the field of lifelogging research by pinpointing the precise characteristics.
