MyLife: An Online Personal Memory Album


Authors: D. Wang and A.-H. Tan
Title: MyLife: An Online Personal Memory Album
Abstract: In this demo, we illustrate the formation, retrieval, and playback of autobiographical memory in an online personal memory album named MyLife. The memory in MyLife consists of pictorial snapshots of one’s life together with the associated context, namely time, location, people, activity, imagery, and emotion. MyLife allows direct import of memories from other online personal photo repositories. For memory retrieval, users can use not only exact cues, but also partial, vague, inaccurate, and random ones. The retrieved memories are then played back as a movie-like slide show with various visual effects and background music. MyLife holds high potential in both research and daily usage. In particular, it provides the sense of nostalgia to the elderly users and thus may help to improve their psychological health and well-being.
