As of very recently, we are observing a convergence of technologies which are creating the conditions for the emergence of lifelogging as a mainstream activity. Computer storage has become incredibly cheap, either on the cloud or on personal devices, there are advances in sensing technologies for both the person as well as location and environment and there is growing interest in the phenomenon of sensing and recording oneself, the so-called quantified-self movement. Add to that our increased openness to sharing information about ourselves and this convergence of technologies and circumstances has led to a slow maturing in the area known as lifelogging, creating lifelogs and the software required to manage those lifelogs. This book sets out to provide a comprehensive review of lifelogging, to cover the history of the field, the technologies that are currently available and the applications for which lifelogging can be used. It presents lifelogging in terms of the challenges it poses for information access and information retrieval in general.
