Abstract

The SenseCam is a small wearable personal device which automatically captures up to 2,500 images per day. This yields a very large personal collection of images, or in a sense a large visual diary of a person’s day. Intelligent techniques are necessary for effective structuring, searching and browsing of this image collection for locating important or significant events in a person’s life. In this paper we identify three stages in the process of capturing and structuring SenseCam images and then displaying them to an end user to review. These stages are expressed in terms of the Canonical process stages to which they correlate.
