Abstract

We present an event based system for storing, managing, and presenting personal multimedia history. At the heart of our approach is information organization using the concept of an event. Events allow modeling of the data in a manner that is independent of media. To store events, a novel database called EventBase is developed which is indexed by events. The unique characteristics of events make multidimensional querying and multiple perspective explorations of personal history information feasible. In this demo we present the major functions of eVitae.
