The volume of personal digital data captured from today's content creation devices, such as digital cameras, digital video recorders and sensecams pose many challenges for organising and retrieving content for users. By utilising content and contextual analysis along with an understanding of the usage scenarios involved, it is possible to develop effective information retrieval technologies for these personal archives. In this talk I will discuss how we, at the Centre for Digital Video Processing, Dublin City University, have employed both content and contextual analysis to automatically organise human digital memory (sensecam) collections and I will focus specifically on how we have employed techniques from photo and video retrieval in the novel domain of human digital memories.
