Abstract

In this paper, we describe the HCI challenges associated with the novel domain of lifelogging for older users. The SenseCam is a passively capturing wearable camera, worn via a lanyard around the neck and used to create a personal lifelog or visual recording of the wearer's life, which generates information that may be very helpful as a human memory aid. Indeed, given that memory defects are more marked in the elderly, we believe that lifelogging browsing techniques which are considerate of the elderly are imperative. Thus, the challenge tackled in this work was to design and integrate the lifelogging activity supported by new technologies in such a way that can easily be learned and used by older people, enabling them to enhance and enrich their lives with the new technologies. This work provides design practitioners of future lifelogging interfaces early sight of the lessons we have learned in making lifelogging technologies accessible to elderly non-computing literate participants.
