Analyzing Daily Activity Logs for Smart Interaction
Collecting and analyzing daily activity logs can provide potential insights for better understanding and possible optimization for individual and organizational activities and operations. There are multiple sources to gather information in various formats during daily activities. People usually post photos, video clips, or messages to their social channels everyday. People may record their daily activities with wearable cameras or other types of sensors. Millions of surveillance cameras capture various events in traffic systems, offices, or supermarkets. It is an increasing demand to process and analyze such information, mostly in visual format, to develop useful services and utilities for smart environments.
In this talk, we present several modalities to analyze and interact with daily activity logs to develop potential applications for smart environments. Our proposed systems are based on practical social needs and aim to provide people natural experience with smart services and utilities.
– People can access to augmented data and services for tourism or shopping by recognizing the current context and retrieving similar known cases.
– Lost items can be found or memories can be retrieved or verified by searching daily logs.
– Reminiscence can help people to positively revive past memories and connections with their relatives.
– Regular events and anomalies can be detected from surveillance systems for appropriate actions.
– Event simulation in virtual or mixed reality environments can be generated from real life data for education and training.
We also discuss about privacy and security issues in collecting and analyzing daily activity logs.
