Technology has always had a direct impact on how and what humans remember. Technology radically changes the nature and scale of the cues that we can preserve outside our own memory in order to trigger recall. In recent years, three separate strands of technology have developed to the extent that collectively they open up entirely new ways of augmenting human memory: (1) novel near-continuous capture (lifelogging) technology (2) advanced data storage and processing technology, and (3) ubiquitous display technology. In my talk, I will present results from RECALL, a 3-year FET-Open project that aimed to re-think and re-define the notion of memory augmentation.
