Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Nowadays we live in a world where many of us engage with computers more than humans as a result of spending a major part of our life in front of a range of computing devices. Consequently, it's becoming important to shed more light on our interactions with computing devices, which we see as a special domain of lifelogging (information-lifelogging), where capturing and archiving what we see on our computer screens can be utilised for several useful applications such as user profiling, personalization and memory support. In this work, we present a tool that allows us to passively capture the digital content we see on our screens for later re-access. It can be considered as a type of digital memory that stores user's computer usage to recall a user's information creation and access activities. This has potential to assist users to better achieve their daily tasks by having access to a digital backup where their previous content and experience can be recalled as required.
