Lecture Description


April 18, 2008 lecture by Steve Whittaker for the Stanford University Human Computer Interaction Seminar (CS547).



Steve Whittaker reviews the Digital Memories vision, briefly present various studies that challenge that vision, moving on to suggest an alternative approach to the topic that is informed by cognitive science, suggesting that instead of focusing on exhaustive capture we should be designing prosthetic memory devices that are (a) synergistic with our organic memories (b) have mechanisms for selecting and abstracting critical events from the memory record.
